Synopsis

A GIRL WHO JUST LOVED TO SKATE FROM THE AGE OF EIGHT, POPPY STARR OLSEN BECAME THE NUMBER ONE FEMALE BOWL SKATER IN AUSTRALIA AT AGE 14 AND WENT ON TO TAKE OUT BRONZE AT THE XGAMES AT AGE 17, THE ULTIMATE COMPETITION IN THE WORLD OF SKATEBOARDING.

 

The same year, skateboarding is added to the roster for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Now faced with the opportunity to represent Australia on the world stage Poppy grapples with the transition from skater to athlete and the pressure of competition mounts in a way it has never done before.

 

A coming of age story told over 12 years, TALL POPPY documents Poppy’s journey intimately as she navigates the uncomfortable idea of what it means to be a competitive athlete, the complexities of a relationship with a mum turned manager and finding her place in a male-dominated industry.
