Lynsey Dyer, a big mountain freeskier and Eddie Bauer athlete, recently premiered her debut film, “Pretty Faces” to a sold-out theater Colorado, and it's rolling into the Egyptian Theatre in Boise on Wednesday, Oct. 29.
I could see this being a really cool mother/daughter event, or an alternative to the usual slate of ski films that pop up during fall.
Normally I don't feature events like this until about a week out, but tickets could go fast, so it's getting an early notice because of its unique nature. I also think people are ready for an alternate to the usual slate of ski films that pop in the fall, and this could be refreshing change.
The film is partially because footage of women skiers often gets left on the cutting room floor during production of other ski films. While it's easy to get jaded by that, based on the trailer, "Pretty Faces" is a celebration, not a protest.
“We are on a mission to make skiing and the outdoors look so fun that no girl will ever want to stay inside,” Dyer said. “Through this project and my nonprofit SheJumps, we want young girls to see positive, strong, and courageous women pursuing their passions and finding success. We want to show females everywhere: ‘if she can do it, so can I.’”
With help from presenting sponsor Eddie Bauer, “Pretty Faces” the film was crowd-sourced, crowd-funded and "a project that is sure to shatter the status-quo of women in ski movies."
