Pretty Strong!


The film follows eight of the world’s strongest female climbers as they explore new climbing areas, send hard projects, and push the boundaries of the sport and themselves. Putting bad-

ass ladies front and centre, 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 some of the best climbers in the world—some you know, some you don’t—doing what they do best: crushing hard rock climbs. Your palms will sweat from the dizzying heights, your imagination will expand with the breathtaking landscapes, and your motivation will soar from the determination and try-hard of these strong women.

Featured Climbers: Nina Williams, Katie Lambert, Daila Ojeda, Hazel Findlay, Isabelle Faus, Fernanda Rodriguez, and more Film locations: Red River Gorge, Kentucky; Rifle, Colorado; Estes Park, Colorado; Siurana, Spain; Ticino, Switzerland; Yosemite, California; Bishop,

California; Rocklands, South Africa; El Salto, Mexico.

Created by the all-women production team Never Not Collective, Pretty Strong is a climbing film about women, by women, and for everyone.

It starts screening this week at the theatre and bookings can be made online at www.regentgreymouth.co.nz and at the box office.
