Robin Starbuck HOW WE SEE WATER (2109, 25 minutes, digital)
“How We See Water” follows the lives of two young women, Juana Gomez Ramirez and Rosa Maria Hernandez, in San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico, as they grow from girls to young women and struggle to fulfill their dreams of obtaining an education while also serving a vital role in earning a living for their families. The survival of children in indigenous Chiapian Mexico is both fragile and resonant with community.
Tucker Meijer WHO I’VE ALWAYS BEEN (2019, 22 minutes, digital)
The stories of Tia-Clair Toomey, Brooke Wells and Katrin Davidsdottir – three of the fittest women in the world – didn’t begin on CrossFit competition podiums. Their stories started before that, in an Australian cane farm, Icelandic city and midwestern suburb. “Who I’ve Always Been” chronicles the people and places that shaped the stories of Tia, Brooke and Katrin and portrays them as powerful women who are more than just social media influencers.
