GUNPOWDER WOMEN

(upcoming documentary)

Co-Producer, Camera Operator

Currently working on a short ethnographic documentary with directors Gabriella Garcia-Pardo and Gwyneth Talley.

GUNPOWDER WOMEN introduces us to a group of Moroccan women who are challenging stereotypes by competing in a traditionally male display of horsemanship with roots in traditional military tactics called Tbourida (also known as Fantasia).

But as the years have gone by, it became a national competitive sport that draws large audiences.

 

Tbourida has become such a strong part of the Moroccan identity that the Royal Federation of Equestrian Sports is currently working toward UNESCO designation as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.

2018-2020, Morocco/USA.
