Eagle Boy

Eagle Boy is a documentary film that follows a team competing in the Suicide Race, an infamous horse race that sends horses and their jockeys down a precariously steep hill and across the Okanogan River on the Colville Reservation in northern Washington State.  The meditative pace of the film looks beyond the race’s spectacle to reveal the timeless relationships of a community bonded in tradition.

Made in collaboration with Sam Wilson in 2017-18.
