From the director:
AERIS is a synthesis of stories I was told or experienced first-hand during my 10-year career as a professional snowboarder. These are voices from the fringes of mainstream culture about disruption, resilience and a life driven by passion for one thing; snowboarding.
The female lead characters in our story are too raw and too real for the Hollywood system. They are not traditional role models, they are powerful women who live heroic lives.
We know there’s an audience who wants a new hero. We’re not going to let Hollywood norms stop us from sharing this unique perspective on professional sports. We can’t do it without your support and participation— we invite you into a growing community of people who will help bring this young woman’s inspiring story to the world.
