Big vs Small is a modern-day fairy-tale stretching from monster waves in Portugal to the dark stillness of a far-north, frozen Finnish lake – it’s about power and strength on top of the water and facing demons under it.
Filmmaker Minna Dufton follows elite big wave champion surfer, Joana Andrade who rides the powerhouse waves at Nazaré, Portugal and documents Andrade’s remarkable meeting with Finnish world champion free diver, Johanna Nordblad. This documentary is a unique and personal story about overcoming fear and harnessing extraordinary talent.
