Sierra Quitiquit Produced & Co-Directed Video Dedicated to The Women’s March

On Saturday afternoon I opened up Facebook to find my feed filled with hundreds of posts by people around the world participating in the Women’s March on Washington—an organized march created with a goal to demonstrate against the policies of President Trump and to affirm human rights, civil rights, respect for women, justice, liberty, environmental stewardship, and free speech through peaceful protest. Women and men everywhere were proudly posted photos with their signage and New York Times’ Facebook Live showed Ashley Judd, Michael Moore, America Ferrara, Madonna, and others brought the house down and lead what would end up being one of the biggest protests in American history.

Among that huge DC crowd was none other that pro skier and model Sierra Quitiquit.  

"Today marks the largest protest in American history. This is democracy!!! Thank you to all the inspiring humans around the world that I had the pleasure of marching alongside with today. I am totally uplifted by you all. Thank you!" Quitiquit wrote on her Instagram on the day of the march. 

But what we didn't know then was that Quitiquit was also working on this short film, dedicated to the millions of individuals, from all seven continents, who marched in solidarity at the Women's March on Washington.

Quitiquit says, "Experiencing the Women's March in Washington DC was one of the most powerful and impactful experiences of my life. I teamed up with filmmakers Cole Sax & Phil Hessler to produce a short film from DC to encourage momentum in activism. Please, take a moment to stand up for what you believe in and write your representatives. Your voice matters."

Warning: This video will hit you right in the feels, but it's absolutely worth the watch. Travis Fugate had never met a blind person before he lost his vision fighting overseas. He was sure that extreme sports were over for him. But as Travis would learn, he was capable of kayaking down 226 miles of frothing whitewater through the Grand Canyon.

1% for the Planet Makes it Effortless to Support the Outdoors

On our film posters, trailers, and credits you may have noticed the recurring logo for 1% for the Planet. No, they’re not a title sponsor of our projects, inversely, we support the important work that they’re doing for the environment. Right now only 3% of philanthropy is directed to environmental causes, and 1% for the Planet is hoping to be the catalyst to expand that statistic.
