Director's Statement

Musher follows four female sled-dog racers as they prepare for the annual Copperdog150, bonding with their dogs, and passing the torch between generations of people and dogs. As each musher prepares for the race, we reveal their community, devotion to the lifestyle, and how women influence the sport. We believe in the power of subtlety to convey messages and pose questions for an audience to ponder. This film celebrates the lives of sled dogs and those living with them, and it has the potential to bring attention to animal welfare, gender equality and environmental concerns.
