Short documentaries

short documentaries ft inspiring women

Har alltid trott att jag är en morgonmänniska men har insett sista åren att nä, det är jag inte. Känner att jag behöver lite motivation och ett lyft såhär en måndag! Även om du är en morgonmänniska så kan det vara najs med några inspirerande minidokumentärer om awesome brudar igen! Vi kör:

Always thought I was a morning person but these past few years I’ve definitely come to realise that I am not. Even if you are I thought it could be nice to start the day off with some inspiring mini documentaries about awesome chicks. Let’s check ’em out:

Namibia by Maceo Frost

Kuba rankas som en av de bästa länderna i boxning, men trots det så är kvinnor förbjudna att tävla ”because women should protect their beautiful faces”. Namibia har trots det tränat i åratal för att motbevisa detta och få regeringen att ändra lagen. Kort men alltså oj vad jag önskade att den var längre.

Cuba ranks as one of the most successful countries in boxing. Despite this, women are not allowed to compete ”because women should protect their beautiful faces”. Namibia has been training for years to show the government that they should lift the ban.

The Amazonian Tribespeople Who Sailed Down the Seine by the Guardian

Nina Gualinga är halvsvensk från Kichwa-stammen i Amazonas i Ecuador där de tror att skogen är en levande varelse där människor, plantor och djur lever i ett slutet kretslopp. Vi får följa med när de kämpar mot oljeföretagen som vill exploatera deras land. Så jävla mycket integritet, vidom och stolthet som hela världen borde se. Vill bara utplåna typ alla storstäder.

Nina Gualinga is from the Kichwa tribe in the Amazon in Ecuador where they believe in the ‘living forest’, where humans, animals and plants live in harmony. They are fighting oil companies who want to exploit their ancestral land. A moving story of integrity, wisdom and pride that the whole world needs to see.

Losing a Leg Didn’t Make This Woman Feel Any Less Beautiful | Dispelling Beauty Myths

Bloggaren och allmänt badass Mama Cax var 15 när en aggressiv form av cancer tvingade henne att amputera sitt högerben. Hon pratar om sin resa från att i skam alltid gömma sin funktionsnedsättning till att lära sig älska sig själv och därmed bli en ikon för personer med funktionsvarieringar. “This label of a person with a disability, or ‘an amputee’… There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s the same label as being a woman or being a black person; it’s just a label.” 

Badass style blogger Mama Cax, who was 15 when an aggressive form of cancer claimed her right leg from the hip down, talks about her journey from trying to cover up her disability to teaching her how to love herself and becoming an icon of courage for amputees around the world. “This label of a person with a disability, or ‘an amputee’… There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s the same label as being a woman or being a black person; it’s just a label.” 

 

 

 

 

 

MINI DOCUMENTERIES FEATURING INSPIRING WOMEN, PT II

5-SHORT-DOC

Time for another post with short documentaries with inspirational women. I tend to watch them on the bus on my way to work or a meeting because it makes me feel like a bloody boss. Hopefully these will do the same for you! Don’t miss out on the first part.

Badass photographer Andrea Sonnenberg aka Teenwitch captures everything that I dream of when it comes to youth culture. I want to catch a plane down to the States and become her intern/friend and experience her adventurous life.

The community and artistry behind the female black hair beauty Salons in the States.

Maddie Sensibile just seems like the coolest chick. She works with social media for Urban Outfitters and talks about her obsession and love for bands.

Runner and chef Preety Mudhar on going after her dream job and how being athletic helped her do that.

Shantell Martin, an artist known for her stream-of-consciousness drawings, draws on people, on airplanes, and on clothing. Her approach to art and creation is free and liberating and I wish I could have the same attitude to writing.
