Three different film programs of Vanessa's work hit the road on the NSEW Film Tour. 

1. A selection of 13 shorts. These short, personal constructions demonstrate a wide range of formal approaches and subjects that include wildness, hitchhiking, death, nuclear power, gentrification and migration.  
Renwick's films share a restless spirit, an interest in outlaw art-making, and an unflagging sense of wanderlust.

2.  Medusa Smack with Hope and Prey. A program which starts with a poetic, relaxing video about jellyfish - Moon Jellies and Sea Nettles, with a score by Tara Jane O'Neil. Then we head into a heart-pounding three channel exploration of wolves, coyotes, bison, elk, eagles, ravens and moose in the Yellowstone winter scape, with a score by Daniel Menche.

3. A program focusing on wolves and wildlife management.
