‘The Mountains Are Calling’ follows the journey of a woman setting out to walk the length of America on her own.
When life is reduced to what can fit in a backpack, things get simpler and more complicated.
The film explores the paradoxes of life on the trail:
dirt and beauty
loneliness and camaraderie
fear and bravery
Packed with my camera and everything I needed to survive on my back, I hiked the 4265km length of America, through pristine wilderness in California, Oregon and Washington.
There were mountain lions, snowy peaks, dangerous river crossings, tears, blood, isolation, friendship and joy. I also met and interviewed many wonderful people along the way.

A call-out for post production collaboration
I made this short video before I began hiking the PCT, using footage from a training hike in New Zealand.
