A land in skateboarding is to do a trick successfully, and this land, the outdoors, skateboarding and adventure are for everyone.
A Land for Everyone is a project and short film following skateboard and adventure photographer Hannah Bailey and skateboarder Lyndsay McLaren as they explore the highlands of Scotland. As women who grew up in Scotland, Hannah and Lyndsay’s teenage selves never imagined a career in skateboarding would be possible, so this adventure is a nod to their childhoods and the journeys they have been on ever since.
you don’t have to fit the stereotypical narrative for what a skateboarder or outdoors person looks or acts like to embrace everything that the land has to offer.
The short film by passionate outdoor videographer Rachel Sarah follows Lyndsay and Hannah through the wild, winding roads of Torridon as they explore the belief that respect, protect and share applies in the outdoors, skateboarding, sport, the land, and everyday humanity.
As they revisit and reclaim the highlands and lowlands of their youth, their goal is to challenge perspectives. Combining their love of adventure and the outdoors with their passion to protect it and invite more people into these spaces, and proving that you don’t have to fit the stereotypical narrative for what a skateboarder or outdoors person looks or acts like to embrace everything that the land has to offer.
A Land for Everyone is due to premiere on Wednesday 12th October at the Adventure Uncovered Film Festival in Bristol. The festival which works in partnership with the Blue Earth Summit aims to highlight the grit, diversity, challenges and triumphs of adventure’s lesser-known tales and also features a number of Q&A sessions with filmmakers, casts and directors from some of the selections.
There will also be a special screening of the film on Friday 14th October at Red Bull London, hosted by spoken word artist Mat Lloyd. The evening will include a chat with filmmaker Rachel, Hannah and Lyndsay, plus special guests. Ticket sales are on a donation basis with the event raising money for non-profit organisation Skateistan.
