New Film ‘Pretty Strong’ is Much Needed

This new film project called ‘Pretty Strong’ promises to be an action-packed and inspiring project once complete.

The film’s production team have started a kickstarter page, on which they note, “A climbing film about women, by women, for everyone.

We are getting pretty stoked about our newest project! Stay tuned for more info on August, 29! (Photo by @etteloc) #nevernotcollective

“This isn’t a film about gender imbalance or the sexualization of women or what it’s like to have your period at the crag. This is a film about five of the best climbers in the world doing what they do best: crushing.

“Pretty Strong will follow five female climbers around the world as they explore new climbing areas, find projects and push the boundaries of our sport.”

The team explains that out of 91 main segments in high production climbing films (which they watched as research), there were only eight segments that featured a female climber as the main character (and the same woman was the subject in three of those).
