Synopsis

To celebrate International Women's Day, eight fascinating, delightful and inspiring stories about women and girls around the world.


From girls taking their education in hand in the mountains of Northern Pakistan to a Hollywood starlet turned defender of wilderness and mischievous rabble-rouser; from the rivers of Greenland, where a mother is passing her passion for fishing on to her young daughter, to a British woman's quest to make friends with her body again through wild swimming, it's 95 minutes of pure inspiration.



LIFE OF PIE

Singletrack shredders and pizza chefs Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller have transformed their town into a mountain biking hotspot with their Hot Tomato Café. It wasn’t easy at first — some conservative residents weren’t quite ready for their 'lifestyle'. But they are now indispensable members of the community.



GIRLS SELECTION

Director: Kathryn Everett

Life is hard in remote northern Pakistan – especially for women, who face significant cultural, economic, and geographic barriers to opportunity and education. For the first time, girls in the region are challenging tradition for their right to go to school.



MY MOM VALA

Director: RC Cone

Rivers run through Vala Árnadóttir's blood and she’s teaching her daughter Mathilda everything she knows. This short film paints the fantastical and mysterious country of Greenland through Mathilda's fantasies and Vala's eyes.



SARAH

Director: Boryana Ivanova

Once a swimming champion in Syria, now Sarah finds herself on a broken boat in the Mediterranean. She knows that this will be the most important race she will ever compete in. The prize - saving her own life and the life of her sister.



KATIE

Katie Lee was many things: Hollywood starlet turned river rat, guitar-wielding folk singer, uncompromising defender of wilderness and mischievous rabble-rouser. This short film pays tribute to a life shaped by beauty, adventure and the sorrow of a paradise lost, but most of all by uninhibited passion.



GRACE

Director: Rachel Pikelny

Captures the journey of a 36-year-old suburban soccer mom and breast cancer survivor who decides to reclaim her body by covering her mastectomy scars with an elaborate tattoo. Directed by a recent breast cancer survivor and created by an all-female crew.



NELA

Director: Andrew Margetson

Choreographed by Will Tuckett, a strikingly intimate study of the great classical ballerina Marianela Nuñez as she dances to Nina Simone.



MY BIG WHITE THIGHS AND ME

Director: Hannah Maia

A young woman has fallen out of love with her own body. Committed to making a change she sets herself the simple goal of swimming in open water at least once a month for a year.
