Connect the dots of stories lost…

A ski film series exploring identity, community, and belonging

About Our Project

The journey of navigating identity often complicates our ability to feel we belong. We struggle to find space to celebrate our full, multifaceted, messy selves.  Mountains give us a medium to celebrate who we’ve become as much as reclaim the selves we’ve never known.

Dani and Lani are two ski alpinists exploring what identity, community, and belonging mean to them as mixed race Latinas in the USA. In their three-season quest to learn more about their place in the world, mountains give them a medium to celebrate who they’ve become as much as reclaim the selves they’ve never known.

Word on the Street

"OUTLIER is a love letter to BIPOC folks in the outdoors, a wake-up call to the wider outdoor community, and an "I see you" to anyone who has ever struggled to confidently know they belong."
Faith Eve Briggs
Co-Director
In this divisive time where we as a society struggle to find any bridges between different ideologies and identities, OUTLIER creates a platform for all of us to find common ground and celebrate our differences, together to create a better tomorrow for everyone.
