Goddesses, the latest short film from Morgan Maassen, takes us inside the dreamlike lives of sisters Vahine, Heimiti, and Kohai Fierro.
The Tahitian chargers are taking women’s surfing to exciting new realms, and they’re doing it side-by-side. The profile from Maassen is a snapshot into the magic of the island, and how it flows through their surfing and in their roles as protectors of their natural environment.
‘Watching them knock on the door of Teahupo’o one-by-one, Vahine leading the way into some of the heaviest waves I’ve ever seen women surf, is enthralling,’ said Maassen. ‘To visit them at their home, to spend time with the family, to explore nature and the sea with them, all the while chasing swells and watching these women charge bigger and bigger surf, has been utterly moving. I am such a huge fan of these sisters, and the opportunity to point my lens at them as they live and grow was the thrill of a lifetime.’
