Russian director Inna Blokhina’s most ambitious project to date, She is the Ocean, examines the lives of eight extraordinary women who define the courage and spirituality it takes to lead a life of the sea.
A big wave surfer, a freediver, a midwife, a scientist, a fourteen-year-old surfing prodigy, even a cliff diver.
Covering all corners of the globe, including Hawaiʻi and Russia, She is the Ocean is a thoughtful examination of remarkable women who share a profound love for the sea.
A love so profound that they have all chosen to make it the center of their physical, philosophical and professional lives.
Subjects include Coco Ho, Jeannie Chesser, and more.
