95 minutes of pure inspiration! This programme offers the most inspiring short documentary films about women and girls from around the world to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Life of Pie (11mins 25secs)
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 Section (12mins 30secs)
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 (9mins 45 secs)
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 (3mins 52secs)
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 (9mins 43secs)
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.
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 (3mins 26secs)
A strikingly intimate study of the great classical ballerina Marianela Nuñez as she dances to Nina Simone, choreographed by Will Tuckett.
My Big White Thighs and Me (25mins)
A young-ish woman has fallen out of love with her own body. Frustrated, she wishes they didn’t have to hang out quite so much. Committed to making a change she sets herself the simple goal of swimming in open water at least once a month for a year.
The main feature will commence 15 minutes after the advertised screening time.
