What’s the film all about?!
Hailing from the remote village of Alert Bay, British Columbia Spencer O’Brien dedicated her life to becoming a world champion snowboarder. But, being driven to win came at a cost. Competing at the elite level was taking Spencer further from her Indigenous heritage than she realized.
Precious Leader Woman tells Spencer’s story from childhood to the world stage, to coming full circle to embrace her identity as she pushes forward bringing her heart and soul to her next challenge, the backcountry.
