You might remember we posted this amazing video a while back.

Honore Pascale was left paralysed in a car accident. Her dream was always to go surfing. So with the help of a friend and a lot of duct tape, they made her wish a reality.

Now you can see this film, plus many more on the big screen when the International Ocean Film Festival comes to the UK next month.
