In the documentary we follow Irene Andersen, one of the biggest female bodybuilders in the world. Irene's dream is to compete in Miss Olympia before she turns 50, that is in two years. It has been her dream since she was eighteen. But female bodybuilding is threatened and the biggest competitions are closing down. This year the European Championship and the World Championship shut down female bodybuilding. Even Arnold Classic, Arnold Schwarzenegger's competition, has shut down female bodybuilding.

Will Irene make it to compete in Miss Olympia and what will happen to female bodybuilding?

Spread the campaign everywhere you can. E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram and more. Let the world find out about the documentary TOO BIG FOR THE WORLD! Thank you!

In this Indiegogo campaign our minimum goal is 20 000 dollars. With this amount we can continue the production phase and make the next important trip to Las Vegas and Olympia where we film Irene when she organizes all the female bodybuilders and tries to find the decision makers that decided to remove female bodybuilding.

If this campaign would be very successful and we reach more than 20 000 dollars that money will go directly in to the production phase and we can go ahead and film more of the scenes planned for the film.

We will film Irene when she competes and tries to fulfill her life dream. We will meet up with more important people in the bodybuilding world and we will shoot powerful scenes with Irene posing in beautiful surroundings. You can't make a film about bodybuilding without the extra-ordinary posing scenes that could inspire anyone to work out!

There will also be loving and fun scenes with Irene and her family and you will see how Irene came to be the person she is today.

You can trust that this film will be made no matter what and it will be amazing!

We have finished the pre-production phase and have now started production. We have put all our energy, heart and money in to this film and now we need your help. Support this project, help save female bodybuilding and help Irene fulfill her life long dream. This is an exciting journey and we look forward sharing it with you!



Irene is a 48 year old Jewish mother of three children. Irene has a big heart and she is brave and independent. She is not afraid of going her own way. She also love animals and have a lot of animals at home.

Irene Andersen has always been strong and as a young girl she used to wrestle boys winning over them. She used to train Thai boxing for many years. She also opened a gym and a hotel. Irene has always been weight training and people told her she should compete but it wasn’t until she was 36 she started competing.

She quickly became the best in Sweden and got her pro card. She then started to compete in US. Since then Irene’s life has evolved all around bodybuilding.



We want to show our appreciation through giving back great perks to you!
Here are some of them. Check out more perks on the right!
