Featured Local Film: Bitch Of A Race

Director: Danielle Dawn DiVito – Early Dawn Productions

Cyclist Anna Lena Kempen gave life to the idea for The Frigid Bitch Race over 9 years ago because there wasn’t a space for her in the male-dominated cycling field. She wanted to create an inclusive space for women (and quickly realized the importance of including all underrepresented genders). The race would be harder, longer, colder, and more terrible and awesome than other races, and it would be just for us.

Meet the Filmmaker: Elisa Varlotta

Collaborating with Gone Rogue Productions on the film Guerreras

Guerreras will investigate “how our identities intersect with our climbing experiences” and more specifically, “what it means to be a Latina climber.” The movie will present the untold story of six women in Colombia as well as connect climbers from all over the world through themes of womanhood, understanding our identities, and a shared love for climbing. Elisa introducers her film at No Man’s Land Film Festival and is working to raise funds for their final stretch to finish the making of the film. Hear from Elisa and join her raffle to help her reach her goal!
