Darcy Hennessey Turenne

Darcy Hennessey Turenne is one of the most awarded and prolific female action-sports filmmakers in the industry today. A former professional mountain biker, Darcy is a staple in the outdoor, environmental, and action sports communities but her work extends far beyond the sports world, ranging from quirky shorts, feature-length docs, and commercial spots for clients like Audi to Patagonia. Her latest film “Elle Aime” was a Vimeo “Staff Pick” and chosen as a Vimeo “Best of the Year”. Despite her action-sports background and extensive adventures in faraway places, Darcy still regards giving birth to her son as the craziest thing she’s done to date.
