If you’re familiar with VNTRbirds, you know this company is ran by two sisters, Leanne and Kelley. They didn’t grow up quite as close as these two in Hike Slow, but as they got older and the age gap of six years seemed to dwindle in relevance Leanne and Kelley became the best of friends and now business partners. You can see why they were so drawn to this beautiful story.

Hike Slow is the story of two sisters and their attempt to find a deeper, more reverent connection to the natural world and to one another. It’s a light hearted, educational film that chronicles their journey to Montana’s Centennial Valley, where they spent two weeks as artists-in-residence at the Taft-Nicholson Environmental Humanities Center. The short documentary focuses on themes of slowing down in nature, cultivating creativity, and deepening bonds with loved ones.”
