FILM LINE UP
Women skateboarders promote their sport within a male-dominated culture, told from the perspective of three protagonists – a beginner, pro skater and veteran skater.
Not seeing herself reflected in the outdoor industry, mountain biker, skier and artist Brooklyn Bell created her own role model: a hand-drawn hero called Ruby J, and Brooklyn spent the next few years trying to “live like her, breathe like her, be unapologetically black like her.” With Ruby J as a guide, Brooklyn has come to discover and shape her own identity, one that intertwines her love for dirt, snow, and art—and a voice with which to advocate for diversity and inclusion.
For the first few days after she awoke from her coma, Dani Burt didn’t know her right leg, from just above the knee down, was gone. When the doctors finally told her the full extent of her injuries, Burt, an active, hungry-for-life person, wasn’t sure if she could go on. But she found the courage to continue through surfing, which led her on a path to becoming the first-ever women’s World Adaptive Surfing champion.
Each of us are part of a greater whole, a community that grows stronger together especially when it’s open to all. Leanne Pelosi, Jess Kimura, Marion Haerty, Mary Rand, and Amanda Hankison show us just that. A unique look at these inspiring athletes that make up one hell of a portfolio. This one is for the next generation of riders carving their own paths.
This film was initially just going to be for fun, to dive into Alexis’ life a little bit – not just as a black woman, but a human who loves being outside. Alexis brings to the screen more than vulnerability; she is tackling peaks, creating beautiful images, and creating space for more people of color with her little space buns and one foot on the trail at a time.
Rhonda-Marie Avery, aka “Batgirl” was born with only 8% vision and is legally blind. She has no depth perception and no cones in the back of our retinas, meaning no daytime vision and no color vision. The technical term is Achromatopsia. But her mother would tell you that she has been stubborn since the day she was born. Since then Rhonda has run numerous ultra road and trail marathons, including a 314 mile run across the state of Tennessee. Watch her journey to break down the barriers she saw as a kid.
Jun Bao is the first Chinese woman to climb 5.14.
Today, images of the outdoors are focused on how people look, their gender, and what they are wearing while outdoors. But how we feel out there seems more important. Colors zooming by. Nature as our second skin. Confetti leaves and trail parties, cake snacks and hard laughs. Superbloom envisions our shared technicolor experience in the outdoors. This is where buds grow.
