Moving Upsteam from Carrie Richer on Vimeo

Moving Upstream is a short film that follows one women on a journey through the Wyoming winter as she struggles with a backpack nearly as big as she. She fights the cold, the snow, loses her map and soon finds that the best option is often ditching your baggage and taking the path less traveled. Francesca Romo’s physical performance of this struggle is reminiscent of Chaplin and boasts an unexpected amount of grace and a witty sense of humor, the original score echoes the Chaplinesque theme. This is the eighth film Hole Dance Films has produced.

Wild Full of Grit FINAL from Carrie Richer on Vimeo.

Wild and Full of Grit is a short dance film that embraces the Wyoming landscape and fascinating western history with a fresh way of storytelling – through choreography. The film is narrated by painter Kathryn Mapes Turner as she tells stories of her grandmother, Louise Mapes Bertschy living on the Triangle X Ranch in Grand Teton National Park almost 100 years ago. Memories of Kathryn’s grandmother bleed into reflections on her own life, her artwork, and the sacred nature of the land itself. Wild and Full of Grit highlights how art, femininity, wildness and family converge in the lives of two Wyoming women.

Produced by Hole Dance Films with original scoring by Yandrew
