One More Fall: a short documentary about female skaters

Watch this short film about two Bristol-based skaters and find out how skating defines them.

The Bristol female skating community is growing. In One More Fall we meet Rosie and Livvy and see how skating has impacted on their lives.

For Rosie and Livvy skating is about identity and knowing who they are, and it’s also about not being scared to fall. One More Fall offers an insight into their lives, their relationships and shows us how skating brings them together.

Director Ella McDonald wanted to represent females in the skating community on an ordinary level, as a lot of attention is placed on females in the pro communities. The aim is to inspire girls and young women to view skating as something that they can pursue.
