Synopsis

DURATION: 60 MINUTES

Within every woman is an untamed wild, instinctive creature — a powerful force of passion, creativity and infinite wisdom.
Her name is Wild Woman.

Five intrepid friends set out on the surfing adventure of a lifetime. Commencing in Australia, they head to California where they gather themselves in preparation for the 3000-mile odyssey from Mexico all the way down the Central American coastline to Panama.

Surf the Wild Woman is a journey of discovery into the wild nature of woman, where each encounter and experience along the way challenges these women to grow through humour and grace, whilst keeping open hearts and minds, so that they can become more of who they already are.

Enriching the tapestry of this journey, the women find themselves bumping shoulders with Janne Robinson, Tammi Lynn Kent and other inspiring women who embody the wild woman essence. They hit legendary, as well as local surf locations throughout Central America and beyond, in search of adventure.

Issue Summary

A short summary of the issue the documentary is addressing

An emerging trend buzzing around social media is the theme of Wild Woman. While women and girls around the world continue to be exploited, segregated and oppressed, there is a voice that appears to be getting louder that is saying, "No – Enough!”
This is the voice of the Wild Woman.

We are living in exciting times. Women are now willing to fearlessly raise their hands and proudly say, “I am a feminist.”

The voice of the Wild Woman has spoken, and women are answering the call to reclaim her on a global scale. Unlike the first swell of feminism where activists acted alone or in groups to bring forth change in their communities, this call to action has created a new wave of modern day feminism which is gaining momentum across the planet. Women all over the planet are using technology and social media to band together for the rise of all women.

Impact

What is the impact vision statement of the documentary?

Our objective is to create social impact by empowering women to think, feel and act differently about their lives. We support women to grow, whether it be through having a voice or asserting boundaries. Our intention is for women to think differently about how they treat themselves and each other. We want to motivate them to realise that they can live their best life now. They can have a job that’s in alignment with their soul, earn the wealth they want to and raise their children their way.

Outcomes

What outcomes does the project hope to achieve from making this documentary?

Our vision is to change the structure of how the masculine and feminine currently operate and coexist with each other and within themselves. This film is absolutely not about putting down the masculine. Quite the opposite. It’s about women empowering themselves, which then empowers men. From this space we create a new earth. We’re looking for a more balanced masculine and feminine – in duality, in a relationship, and especially within ourselves - determining where we need to honour and use our inner masculine, and when it is necessary to pull the masculine back and step into the feminine.

This documentary series is a catalyst for rapid change and growth. Even ten years ago, we never heard of living in alignment; having a leap in consciousness; stepping into our feminine. These were not the conversations we were having, yet already we are seeing the shift. The impact of our series will be measured by seeing more women living in accordance to their true essence.

Stakeholders

How will partnerships with this project help inform the project development?

Already we have reached out and gained sponsorship from eco-companies who are in alignment with our beliefs and ethos. We have aligned with Five Oceans who make surf board fins made from recycled plastic bottles sourced from the wastes found in oceans; Salt Gypsy who make bikinis from discarded nylon fishing nets found in the ocean and Under Our Sun organic sunscreen who give a portion of their profits to marine conservation. We are connecting and cross-promoting with conscious leaders, pioneers of companies who are creating innovative and epic products to make the planet a better place – people who have chosen to live their lives in alignment, just as our Wild Women have.

Audience Engagement and Social Impact

What actions does this project hope for its viewers after seeing this film?

Surf The Wild Woman is a call to action for women around the globe to change the elements of their life that are no longer serving them. Our intention is that women are inspired into action; that they have the courage to change that job they hate, leave the relationship / friendship that is dragging them down or to go on that overseas trip that has been calling them for years but that they have not made a priority.

Measurement and Evaluation

What is the projects indicators for success?

This documentary series is a catalyst for rapid change and growth. Even ten years ago, we never heard of living in alignment; having a leap in consciousness; stepping into our feminine. These were not the conversations we were having, yet already we are seeing the shift. The impact of our series will be measured by seeing more women living in accordance to their true essence. It will be seeing young women taking on the world with more confidence, strength and success than we’ve ever seen before. It will be the day when we do a double take after hearing the average Bob-the-builder say to his mates, “yeah, my wife is living in her divine feminine”.
