Adventure Film Club – Big vs Small (12A) + Director’s Q&A

F Rated Film
Saturday 22nd October 2022

Dir. Minna Dufton, Finland, 2021, 76 mins, some subtitles.

Big vs Small is an energetic and inspirational documentary that profiles Joana Andrade, Portugal’s first female big wave surfer, known to many as ‘Tiny Fighter’. Fiery, athletic and constantly breaking barriers in her quest to improve as an extreme competitor, Joana seeks help from celebrated free diver, Johanna Nordblad, in order to face her demons and overcome the thunderous waters of Nazaré, Portugal. Big vs Small is a modern-day fairy-tale stretching from the raging monster waves in the south 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. It's about trust, it's about letting go, and it's about what happens when two elite female champions share their extraordinary talent with each other.

We're thrilled to announce that Big vs Small's writer and director Minna Dufton will attend the screening and give a Q&A after the film.

Minna Dufton is an award winning journalist, documentarist and TV industry professional with a cause.

“In addition to making my films, I always want to make impact. I want my films to act as catalysts for change. I particularly want to ensure that women are active and vocal participants in industry conversations around artistic, social and political issues. I lead by my own example and personally put myself on the line to drive this change; physically, mentally and monetarily.”

Minna ́s mission is to bring complex and inspiring stories to the screen in a healing manner. She believes that showing vulnerability is the key to showing courage.
