Congratulations to RPJ Client Stephanie Johnes on her Documentary, Maya and the Wave, Opening DOC NYC

Warm congratulations to RPJ client, Stephanie Johnes, whose documentary Maya and the Wave is opening the 13th annual DOC NYC festival on November 9th. Maya and the Wave follows Brazilian athlete, Maya Gabeira, as she battles injuries and gender bias to make her mark in the male-dominated world of competitive surfing. Stephanie Johnes, who directed the film, profiled Maya over several years to build an intimate portrait of the elite athlete’s quest to break the world record for the biggest wave ever surfed by a woman.

Maya and the Wave will screen at the SVA Theatre in New York at 6:45 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A session with Stephanie and Maya. Find more information here and congratulations to Stephanie!
