Directed by Vera Brunner-Sung

Missoula 2013 83 mins. In English

Having recently moved to Missoula, Montana to teach English to a group of international students, thirty-something Doris finds herself alone. She wanders listlessly, but her students possess courage, purpose, and grounding and understand what it takes to belong. Inspired in part by director Brenner-Sung’s experience moving to Montana in 2011, BELLA VISTA is a meditation on displacement and adaptation in the contemporary American West exploring both the perils of rootlessness as well as the optimism of new beginnings.
