UNDEREXPOSED: A Women’s Skateboarding Documentary is a documentary film that highlights women’s skateboarding as well analyzes the skate industry’s approach to female skateboarders.
The film is not whiny, accusatory or full of finger-pointing. It is merely an examination of the current opportunities available to female athletes in action sports, particularly skateboarding.
By analyzing the media and marketing tactics of the skateboarding industry, we can learn how to promote an increase of opportunities for girls and women who want to pursue skateboarding.
Interviewees include: Stave Caballero, Ed Templeton, Lance Mountain, Elissa Steamer as well as representatives from Thrasher, TransWorld Skateboarding, Sole Technology and Osiris.
Here is the trailer:
