REI PRESENTS: 1000 MILE DREAM

DOCUMENTARY SHORT



Liza Dietzen has dreamt of competing as a dog sledder since learning about the Iditarod in kindergarten. Ever since, she’s dedicated the majority of her life to raising and caring for her sled dog team, fostering a deep bond built on mutual trust.

We filmed this documentary for REI over the course of six months in Michigan. Our small crew covered five locations in summer and winter to capture this story. We completed post, color, and sound in late November 2019. The film released December, 2019.
