Synopsis: Wyoming’s remote and vast wilderness provides the perfect canvas for Alpinists Kim Havell and Julia Heemstra to redefine preconceptions of the feminine. Isolated and exposed on the raw granite peaks of the Wind River Range, the experience of these two women explores the fabric of loss, life, and friendship.

Director's Statement

Equal Footing began from a realization that there just aren’t enough films out there showcasing strong women really getting after it in the outdoors. As a filmmaker, I am fortunate enough to have my butt kicked by female athletes with regularity for a living. And while Kim and Julia are truly top notch mountain athletes, we felt it was imperative to also showcase their human side in this film. The result: balance.
