Grace Fury: Released on VOD on April 20.
“Filmmaker, choreographer, ballerina, and Scottish Dance champion Laura Carruthers leads world class performing artists in the stunning Grace Fury. The feature film travels the elements of her personal story as an artist on a breathtaking flight of dynamic choreography, cinematography, realization, and resolve. A reflection of Laura’s years of pioneering in the arts, Grace Fury speaks both poetically and candidly to the challenges of building independent projects, outside, between, and across domains - as a woman - shouldering her homage to the Classical and Celtic dance traditions, yet bound to move hearts and minds to a new point of shared calling…of greater freedom and connection. The fighting, free spirit of her dance and message is evident in this exuberant, inspirational, and thoughtfully crafted performing arts film.”

As he pulls at the threads of this story, he’ll be taken down a path that’s far more terrifying than anyone would have imagined.”
