Underexposed: A Women's Skateboarding Documentary / CLOSING NIGHT FILM
A Women's Skateboarding Documentary
Directed by: Amelia Brodka / USA / English / 2013 / Documentary, Sport / 90 minutes
At a time when women's skateboarding seems bigger than ever, there seem to be fewer opportunities for girls to pursue the sport. How can this be changed? At the age of 12, Amelia Brodka went to the X-Games and discovered that girls can skateboard.
Amelia's desire to find answers led her on a quest to examine the skateboarding industry's approach to how it markets, promotes and supports women in its sport, and to find out if there is a place for women in professional skateboarding. Through interviews with other women who skateboard and prominent figures in the skateboarding industry, exciting skateboarding footage and her own experience, Amelia paints a picture of a subculture within a subculture on the verge of breaking out.
