Synopsis

Throughout her life, the woods have provided Els Van Woert with inspiration and balance. It is why she loves trail running. Today, many of her adventures on the trail are spent with her 5-year-old daughter, Pippa.

In a letter to Pippa, Els describes this relationship with the outdoors. But through her words, she also explores what motherhood has taught her about being a woman, uncovering past scars, confronting fear, discovering vulnerability and evolving her definition of bravery.

Simon Perkins

Simon Perkins' interest in film started during his days as a fly-fishing guide in Montana. He carried his camera around with him and grew intrigued with trying to capture the essence of particular moments in the natural world that were out of his control. He became fascinated with story-telling on the screen and how certain practices could convey the rush and emotions of these natural, untamed moments. Simon currently lives in Vermont, where he works for Orvis. He spends the majority of his time outside of the office with camera in hand, often following his wife, five-year-old daughter, two-year-old son, and four dogs on various adventures through the woods. He is grateful to the Felt Soul Medias and Rockhouse Motions of the film world who keep him constantly captivated, inspired, and in awe.
