Cordova Center to host film fest depicting women athletes, story tellers

A film festival featuring movies about women exploring and adventuring in the outdoors will be screening at the Cordova Center on Friday, April 21 at 7 p.m.

The nine films featured in No Man’s Land Film Festival — a premiere adventure film festival for women athletes and storytellers — all tell diverse stories of conservation, experiences, and exploring nature and identity.

Tickets are on sale now for $20 when you buy them in advance at Prince William Sound Science Center (PWSSC) or Cordova Gear. At the door, tickets are $25 and $15 for students. All proceeds go to support the Women in Science Scholarship Fund. The fund sponsors Cordova girls attending summer science camps.

Films include “Inseparable,” about a woman using her mountain bike to explore her ancestral language and homeland; “Pass It On,” about elderly, long-term care residents going on imaginary rock-climbing expeditions; “Rockies Repeat,” about indigenous and non-indigenous artists capturing a disappearing landscape; and “This is the Motherload,” about two adventurous mothers exploring parenting through seasons of recreation.

The festival is hosted by the PWSSC. More information can be found by contacting [email protected].
