Erik Petersen


United States

Ripples is a short film about finding community in the uplands, and the profound difference one person can make, just by putting positivity into the world. When Douglas Spale, a Black man adopted into a mixed-race family from Nebraska, hears a request for more diverse role models in the upland hunting world, he answers the call. The film follows Spale as he shares his passion for hunting, and what it means to be a positive role model to others.
