Dove Chocolate and Refinery29 have partnered on a coming-of-age story centered around their shared message of female empowerment.
The two companies worked to make a 25-minute short film – 'Clavadista' – on Ava Alvarez, a 15-year-old comes who comes from a long line of Acapulco Clavadistas, or cliff divers.
While her father and brother perform spectacular dives for nearby restaurant goes, Ava is busy waiting tables. In her free time, though, she works in secret on her craft.
