Meet Andréa Katzeff, a downhill skater based in Cape Town. Andréa has always wanted to make a film about women in Skateboarding, especially those who break down heteronormative ideals and who have powerful stories to share.
The film is set to tackle issues of sexism, and general oppressions faced by women in male dominated sports/everyday life. Andréa and her team plan to travel to Europe and Scandinavia to meet up with some incredibly talented skaters, to tell their stories and capture them doing what they do best. These guest skaters include the likes of Carmen Schaeffer, Alicia Fillback, Anna Pixner and Giulia Alfeo – women who are incredibly inspiring, both within skating and everyday life. KINGPIN The Documentary stands to tell their stories in the hopes that they will inspire others too.
