Creating the Film

The film is directed, shot and edited by Ryan Camp of Northman Creative. Having been a part of the community since 2014, Ryan began pursuing the idea of telling the story of Thistle Farms through a broader lens in 2018. 

The film was made in partnership with 4 women who served as executive producers on the film. They advised Ryan on who to film, how to approach filming from a trauma informed perspective and reviewed the film to make sure the story being taught felt true to their experiences.
