A WOMAN'S GUIDE TO THE WORLD

“I started the series with the hope it might encourage women to be the subject of their own adventure Story.” - Apolla Echino
 

Canadian filmmaker Apolla Echino was tired of seeing men get to have all the fun in adventure films and is on a one-woman mission to change that around. Her documentary series, A Woman’s Guide To The World, has taken her aboard a tall ship sailing to Antarctica and into the wildest corners of the Amazon jungle. But it’s the latest chapter, a wintertime surf trip across the stunning South Island of New Zealand that has attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers from across the globe. Watch the sizzle here:

The first installment of the series, 'A Woman’s Guide to the World’ shows how powerful travel can be as a way to gain confidence, push your personal limits, and live a more meaningful life. With the viewer as her close companion, you see the opportunity to leave the comforts of home and relationships, and venture off the beaten path, find your voice, shape your world view, and ultimately, transform your life.

3. The next episodE

Currently the polarization of the world's population gives further thought into where, how and why a female would explore the corners of this earth. It is this reason the next episode purposely sets out to partner with a community that needs highlighting. A population that looks to inspire their daughters and encourage travel in their region. As Apollonia Productions works on the next series pitch we are also eager to hear your destination recommendations.
