A young man journeys through the mountains, in search of something greater.

A short film about slowing down and listening to what’s already there. If Wordsworth, Thoreau, Rilke, and Han Yu collaborated on a poem, composed from the striking imagery of an Appalachian winter, it might feel something like this. Filmed in two days, entirely on location in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Gerton, North Carolina.

from a Story Collaboration between Ross Denyer and Jesse Thornburg
