A LAND SHAPED BY WOMEN BY ANNE-FLORE MARXER

 

The film A Land Shaped by Women, by freeride world champion Anne-Flore Marxer (read our Expert interview) and professional snowboarder Aline Bock, was shot in Iceland - the historic cradle of gender equality - and is a feminist visual essay on the place of women in the society.

We are excited to share this personal project for which they traveled across the country visiting inspiring women: a human rights lawyer, a Polar explorer, a fashion designer, two school girls and a poet. A contribution that is particularly noteworthy as outdoor sports films are mostly driven by men (both the directors and the riders).

 
I have campaigned for a long time in order to establish some equity in my sports. I withdrew from the competition circuit (...) to devote myself to positive projects of empowerment towards women. This gave birth to ‘A Land Shaped by Women.’
