5 pm:


CHICKS ON BOARDS

Duration: 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Director: Dörthe Eickelberg, Germany

Surfing is a magic carpet ride, an ode to a life in freedom. But in some cultures, freedom ends at the shore. Some surfers are being cast out by their family and community. Why? Because those surfers are women. CHICKS ON BOARDS are rebels on boards claiming freedom against all odds.

Soon Sabah will ride her last wave in Gaza. She is going to get married. Then her husband will make decisions for her. Because Aneesha wants to become a surf-pro, she was expelled from her family in India. Suthu is the only black female surfer in the water and in love with another woman – a dangerous mix in South Africa. CHICKS ON BOARDS is a wild and colorful trip on the silver screen: Where there’s a will there’s a wave. Because surfing is more than a sport: It’s a movement.


Film is followed by a Q & A with first Emirati soccer player, Houriya Al Tahri.
