Project Wild Women: A film on Indian Women Adventurers

                                                PROJECT WILD WOMEN
 
How many women come to your mind when you think of cutting edge adventure sport in India? 

That’s right, hardly enough to count on both hands.

But here’s the thing, alternative and extreme sports are taking over the country and there are in fact a chunk of badass women, who are not merely dabbling in them, but are trying to leave a solid mark and turning it into a lifestyle. In a country as big and geographically diverse as India, there is scope for anything; skiing, paragliding, kayaking, ice climbing, you name it and we have it! The only limitation there is, is that of society.

Gender stereotypes have long confined our imagination to an extent that girls underestimate their abilities before even realising them. They are so deeply ingrained in us that we don’t understand the impact of telling a boy, ‘Go on, give it a go’ even if they don’t want to but in the case of a girl softening it down to, ‘If you don’t want to, you don’t have to’. Growing up in a society like that deprives women of the confidence that their male counterparts seem to have in plenty. By the time a girl hits adulthood and frees her mind from these shackles, she is expected to either work in ‘respectable’ established professions and/or ‘get married’. Mostly get married.

That’s why we decided to make a film on 15 brave women who have dared to go against everything that they are ‘supposed to do’ and change this very perception. This movie will feature athletes across 10 unique adventure sports ( skiing, surfing, climbing, mountain biking, BASE Jumping, ice climbing, skateboarding, slacklining, paragliding )with special focus on the athletes and their personal stories of coming forward in their fields.
Our sole purpose is to reflect a realistic view of female athletes  in their respective habitats with focus on the varying skills, grit, unconventional strength and different body types required to follow their passion.  These women hold a special place in society and need to be celebrated for they are pushing their limits in sports that are unheard of even, if that means competing with the boys because the  female category ceases to exist due to the lack of women participants.

Ultimately with this imagery, we hope to create a space where more women can step up and create their own identities and inspire people to comprehend what women adventurers are like.

RELEASES

  • This movie will feature at the IMF Film Festival in the February 2018 from where we hope to get on the All India Tour.
  • A premiere tour in the states from where the athletes belong will take place giving the local community a chance to be a part of this project and connect with the athletes.

A glimpse like no other, of few women you would call wild,
They are women you’ve never seen or met, who listened to their inner child.
They do things you can’t fathom, on water, earth, air and ice,
And they aren’t waiting to be told to live their life otherwise
