Filmmaker Q&A with:

Minna Dufton, Director

Joana Andrade, Big Wave Surfer

BIG vs SMALL profiles Joana Andrade, the first Portuguese woman to surf some of the world's biggest waves in Nazaré, and her journey of personal transformation in the dark stillness of a frozen Finnish lake. A visual treat about power and strength on the water's surface while facing long-buried demons beneath it, this story is about trust and letting go, and what happens when two champion athletes share their extraordinary talents—because the battle is not always on the waves.
