Though the film is not yet complete there is momentum behind this story and this project. We’d like to thank the American Doc Festival in Palm Springs for believing early on in the story, Marie Claire magazine for taking an early notice, Wavelength magazine (UK) did a thoughtful piece on women surfing in restrictive cultures, Surfline featured our story last summer, Lakshmi Puri (deputy director of UN Women) did a speech on women’s rights in sport citing Nasima’s story as her sole example, Sports Illustrated will be doing a piece this summer, and we’ve even been re-tweeted by Melinda Gates!

We are clearly onto something that has struck a chord - now we just need to finish. Thank you!
— Heather Kessinger, Director

Following are a few links to some of the press. Certainly we've missed some (the MC article has apparently been reposted tens of thousands of times) and we are appreciative of all the attention the story has received - here's to keeping up the momentum when we release the film!

Thank you!

We are deeply appreciative of all the press 'The Most Fearless' has received, but it can get a little odd sometimes...

Love that this article showed up on the cover page of their online 'culture' section sandwiched between 'Why Clueless Couldn't Be Made Today' and 'Sorority Secrets'.
