It’s been nearly a decade since Pieter ten Hoopen‘s photography of American people and landscapes grabbed our attention. For over a year, MediaStorm has been collaborating with Pieter on a documentary film called Hungry Horse. Today we launch a Kickstarter campaign to complete the film and bring the everyday legends of Hungry Horse, Montana to the world.
In Hungry Horse, Pieter ten Hoopen touches on the struggles of poverty, drug use and loss. But he more accurately captures the spirit of renewal, peace and serenity in the lives of the people he documents through stunning landscapes and intimate oral histories. Hungry Horse follows the mythical structure of its subjects’ lives—Charlie Krasselt, Brad Lee Bruursema and Katie Kosnoff—and it is through their stories, and ten Hoopen’s powerful imagery that we learn about the timeless cycle of adventure, loss and renewal.
By contributing this campaign, you will help us with the editing and post-production of the film, as well as the development of technologies that will allow ten Hoopen’s film and photography to be displayed within one contained player on the web. It will also help cover the costs of any additional footage needed to complete the film. Funds from this project will be evenly split between Pieter ten Hoopen and MediaStorm.
