"It Ain't Pretty" is a documentary about the challenges and triumphs of female big wave surfers fighting sexism in the water, in competition, in the media and in the surf industry with the support of a closely-knit community of like-minded women. Featuring Ocean Beach surfer Bianca Valenti’s journey from childhood phenom to world-class big wave charger, this probing, incendiary and thought-provoking film takes you inside a growing movement of women that are shattering the shallow and sexualized images of female surfers in the media. Including interviews with top female athletes and awe-inspiring big wave surf footage filmed in the icy waters of Ocean Beach, San Francisco and Mavericks - one of the biggest waves on the planet - this film empowers a new generation of girls to live their dreams and overcome the challenges they face along the way.

Co-writer/Editor Jody Banks will be in attendance at the event and will host a Q&A after the screening.

The screening of this film will benefit Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley. It's been made possible to host thanks to Jon Kane, Marcia Liebich, Janet Debard, Gail Landis and Maryanne Whitcomb.
