Below Surface follows longboard surfer Lucy Small as she grasps the baton from the renegades who fought for equal opportunity in the world of surfing decades before her. After winning a surf competition in Sydney’s Northern Beaches in 2021, and receiving a prize of less than half the male division’s award, Lucy courageously called out the event organisers on stage for their blatant misogyny. The incident went viral and catapulted Lucy into a world of accidental fame. As she found her feet amidst this media maelstrom of newfound attention, Lucy came to a crucial realisation – if she’s taking the podium, she better have something worthwhile to say. But can she say it loud enough in order to make a difference? Official Selections 2022: Women’s Adventure Film Tour, SAL, She Surfs Film Tour, Oregon Documentary Film Festival, Grrl Haus Cinema.
