Director Biography - Andrew Holzschuh

I was first attracted to filmmaking at the age of 15. My interest has only grown since then. I care about people, I care about transformation, and I care about this pale blue dot we call home.

"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
-Albus Dumbledore

Director Statement

I personally love running. I love endurance sports. And I love the Grand Canyon. I myself have run two marathons, and completed two thru-hikes. When I learned Aaron would be attempting the R2R2R, I booked my plane ticket knowing the rest would figure itself out. And as you'll see, it did.
