A Land Shaped By Women
UK PREMIERE: A LAND SHAPED BY WOMEN Dir: Anne-Flore Marxer
Anne-Flore Marxer and Aline Bock journey across Iceland, surfing and snowboarding under the spectacular northern lights. Along the way they meet a raft of inspirational Icelandic women – from Vilborg Arna Gissurardóttir the first Icelander to reach the summit of Mount Everest, to Heida Birgisdottir one of Iceland’s first surfers and the founder of the iconic women’s board sports clothing brand Nikita – to truly understand a country whose roots in equality run deep. “We wanted to bask in the positive vibes of the Icelandic women’s movement, and inspire to embrace a new mindset to a different kind of adventure!” said Director Anne-Flore.
