Underexposed: A Women's Skateboarding Documentary
At the age of 12, Amelia Brodka went to the X-Games and discovered that girls can skateboard. After working hard the following year, she earned an invite to be a competitor. Then they canceled her event. 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. Through interviews with other women who skateboard and prominent figures in the industry, skateboarding footage, and her own experience, Amelia paints a picture of a subculture within a subculture on the verge of breaking out. Part of the Frequency Film Festival. 800-838-3006.
