Summary, etc.:
Screened at 15 international film festivals, winning two awards, this eye-opening short documentary follows a 12-year-old aspiring surfer from a poverty-stricken township outside of Capetown, South-Africa.. Paul dreams of becoming a surfer but this isn't easy for township boys. There is no transportation to the beach and no money for gear, but a non-profit picks up Paul three times a week to go surfing at the crystal white beaches of Blouberg beach.. Narrated by surfing legend Robby Naish, "Paul" opens a window on a little-scene world, and inspires us to reconsider our conceptions of poverty and surfing.
