Woolf Women

Young. Wild. Loose on An open road.

A film that expands on the futuristic self-filming ethos of Gen-Z

An offbeat and unconventional visual chronicle


Jenny is a professional world ranking Downhill Skateboarder.
Marchella is a Maverick Entrepreneur who thrives on all that is creative. Although not altogether strangers, their paths cross at a time when both are seeking answers.

Woolf Women marks their debut in film making.


The spotlight is on Jenny who has been struggling to get over the unexpected and sudden loss of her father. Her friends are worried about her welfare and state of mind. Her depression has led to her losing her job and as a result, she gives up her home to go live in her van whilst being on the move full time. In order to seek solace and distraction, she plans and dreams of an adventurous skateboard expedition with her friends.
 
Finding a friend in Jenny and identifying with her feeling of being at a loose end, Marchella decides to help make the expedition a reality. She sets a challenge for Jenny and her friends to go to Sumela, an ancient monastery built in AD386. It clings precariously to a vertical rock face with a terrifying sheer drop of 1,280 metres and is located in the Pontic mountains of Turkey.
 
Marchella hopes Jenny will find closure and the Woolf Women can also become the first ever downhill boarders to skate down from Sumela. However shortly before their departure, Jenny meets with another major unexpected calamity.
 
This is a film about courage, friendship and adventure. Young, free spirited and athletic – the girls cruise by road for over 10,000 kms into uncharted waters to reach Sumela. Featuring exciting skate scenes, interesting conversation and stunning scenery, Woolf Women is a modern-day Odyssey.

Film Form

The spirit and DNA of Woolf Women is rough and raw but is authentic in its aim to deliver a genuine and modern projection of the storyline and people involved.

Woolf Women is filmed in the style of a ‘direct fly on the wall‘ documentary with no frills attached. It prides itself on the self-filming ethos that is so synonymous with the world of downhill skateboarding and indeed of so many of the new generation of film makers and YouTubers, currently self-projecting on all the various platforms available on the market today.

It is a budget movie stemmed purely from the passion and desires of fresh and trendy rookies that are not out to compete with the current and professional formats in existence but are instead interested in breaking new ground : through individualism and uniqueness with budget equipment and new formats that are in sync with a contemporary generation.

This is not a stylised or conventional film with a pre produced script. It has elements of free styling and is a fresh and raw approach to filming with the 4th wall – offering interaction with the viewer and insight to the zoomers of Generation Z.
