    A Thousand Ways to Kiss the Ground Vod

    A Thousand Ways to Kiss the Ground

    Henna Taylor (2020)

    An exploration into grief and its expression through the stories of individuals who have experienced loss or trauma due to climbing or alpinism. Made in collaboration with the Climbing Grief Fund, this artful compilation of interviews highlights how there is no singular or correct way to grieve. Climbers discuss how they are learning to integrate grief into their daily lives and in effect, change the community’s collective narrative surrounding this topic. The film investigates the paradoxes of grief and the grieving process while mirroring this complexity back to viewers as a starting point to destigmatize and normalize the conversation surrounding grief for climbers and non-climbers alike.

    Speak to me softly

    Henna Taylor (2018)

    Climbers love to talk about exposure, about vertical rock faces and sheer ridgelines, and the experience of hundreds of feet of air underfoot. But what of the exposure that happens within? The inner dialogue and the battle with fear, expectations, and self? 'Speak To Me Softly' is a short film and case study into the emotional and mental side of climbing. Akin to reading someone else’s journal or sneakily looking over their shoulder, the film invites you to take an honest and intimate peek into the headspace of climber having a not-so-sendy day.
