Femme Ocean is a documentary about women in surfing, where women from all backgrounds are invited to share their experiences and to discuss the power of sports impacting lives. Female surfers are fighting for their dreams and see more and more results of equality. The documentary provides time for deeper insights into this passion and shows an authentic picture of the surfer far from her stereotype.
Five portraits of surfers from Portugal, Sri Lanka and Morocco are professional athletes and free surfers, stand for pioneers, environmental activism, independence and risk-taking. Diversity plays a key role here – in terms of age, social background, religion and different backgrounds. One thing unites them: surfing as a motivation to live and to protect the place they love, namely the sea.
