Hobbyhorse Revolution


Hobbyhorse Revolution


CATALOGUE TEXT
Mariam aka Aisku is a prize winning athlete. She sacrifices a lot for her sport, where she performs at championship level, and she takes the risk of being laughed at. She specialises in hobbyhorsing. Aisku also works as a coach. One of her charges, Elsa, reveals quite openly how this unusual hobby helps her cope with difficult times. Many other young women and girls like her demonstrate in this film that hobbyhorsing is not a children’s game but a means to recharge one’s batteries, gain recognition and experience the feeling of belonging. “Respect to the hobbyhorses!”
