She is the Ocean: Celebrating Women & the Sea

“A woman is like the ocean – a force of nature with depths unknown.”

She is the Ocean follows the lives of nine avid waterwomen including pro surfer Coco Ho, shark conservationist Ocean Ramsey, open ocean paddler Andrea Moller, big wave surfer Keala Kennelly, free diver Anna Bader and others.

This movie is a deep dive into the lives of nine dedicated women from around the globe who share one thing in common: a profound love for the sea. A love of open water leads each to make a deeply personal decision to hold the ocean as the epicenter of her physical, philosophical and professional lives.

Director Inna Blockhina, also writer and producer for the film, selects nine woman to create this stirring film portrait. Beginning with three dynamic females who engage in the privilege of ocean sports, to a renowned scientist who plunges into the ocean’s deepest depths, to a cliff diver hailed as “The Bravest Woman in Germany,” She Is the Ocean captures the common thread that bonds them together. This beautiful film explores how this thread helps each of them form their lives, offering immeasurable meaning beyond the normal constraints of society.

Tickets NOW available for the virtual launch.

Stay tuned for a full review of this film after October 16th.  Aloha.

Evelyn O’Doherty

Evelyn O’Doherty, editor & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. As a stand up paddle coach & instructor on the East End of Long Island, NY in the Hamptons, Evelyn coordinates numerous events, races and fundraisers. She herself became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer after being introduced to the sport after a neck injury in 2007 which left her benched from surfing that summer. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to her participation in a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called “A New Perspective”. Evelyn keeps paddling. Today, as editor, publisher and chief bottle washer at Standup Journal, Evelyn keeps the vibe high and her toes wet writing, paddling, surfing, and learning to foil. You can find her most days paddling out on Gardiner’s Bay or surfing at neighboring Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY.
