About the Film:

Without Them I Am Lost is a meditation on landscape and the shape of home. The story follows American writer, Damon Falke, as he considers the implications of migrating to the far north of Norway, above the Arctic Circle. The people he finds thrive in this place. They understand the sublime power of nature. Their lives and stories are shaped by it. Without Them I Am Lost offers a glimpse into a community clinging to a fragile coastline in a rapidly changing world.

The film is directed by Charles M Pepiton, features cinematography by Rebekah Wilkins-Pepiton, music by Tana Bachman-Bland, and is edited by Darrien Mack. It was shot on location in Northern Norway.
