Empowering women and bringing a feminine narrative to outdoor pursuits, this film brings gender equality to the front of the debate. As the women’s travel unfolds, playing in the mountains, in the waves or under the spectacular northern lights, they introduce viewers to the iconic Icelandic women they meet along the way. Gender equality has a long history and a special status in Iceland. As professional snowboarders who’ve fought hard for gender parity in a male-dominated sport throughout their careers, Anne-Flore Marxer and Aline Bock wanted to dig deeper into Icelandic women’s mindsets while combining it with their love for the mountains and the waves.
