Virginia Film Festival 2018: Ingrid

At seventy-six years old, Ingrid Gipson compares her former endeavors as a successful Dallas fashion designer in the 1980s to her current, reclusive lifestyle. After retiring from her creative career, Ingrid moved to the woods. She spends her time creating sculptural ceramic art and creating structures out of nearby rocks. Driven by feelings of uncertainty over whether she had succumbed to the roles that society had chosen for her, Ingrid discusses her newfound sense of fulfillment after dropping everything to become a self-sufficient woman in the wilderness.

The 2018 Virginia Film Festival runs November 1-4, 2018.
