Nika De Carlo dives deep into the emotional trenches of her and her partner’s war on addiction, recovery, trauma, and healing as she discusses her intimate and brutally honest documentary project and visual diary “See You In Heaven”. Although the subject matter presented is graphic, the tenderness held within makes you wonder how two people could be together and yet completely alone at the same time.

Sarah Christianson discusses her investigations into the effects of oil drilling and fracking operations in her home state of North Dakota. A deeply personal matter, Sarah’s own family is included in receiving the prosperity that comes with this latest oil boom, while simultaneously wrestling with the knowledge of damage caused by these operations. This examination of the landscape and the scars left behind begs the question, “what will be left for future generations?”

Jenny Sampson’s series “Skate Girls” discusses the rich culture of female skateboarders using the wet plate collodion process to display the endless camaraderie, openness, and creativity between the “Skate Like a Girl” movement that embraces and makes you wonder, is this truly “rebellion”?
