Into the Sea, directed by Marie Poizeau, is an award winning documentary that shows how three young women overcome cultural barriers to introduce a new sport in Iran: Surfing.
This documentary follows three young women – Irish pro surfer Easkey, Iranian Pro snowboarder Mona and Iranian diver Shalha as they plant the seed of surfing in Iran. All three of these athletes share a passion and a belief that sport, especially surfing, is a way to break down social and cultural barriers and to connect with others.
The film goes on to show how these three young women are encouraging people to join them. The enthusiasm and excitement from the local Baluchi community is breathtaking.
