We are delighted to present Between a Rock and a Hard Place, a PETRIe film in collaboration with Salvatore Ferragamo, starring actress Virginia Gardner, directed by Ben Beagent, and with Fashion Direction by Zadrian Smith. The film is part of Smith and Beagent´s editorial for the upcoming PETRIe 69: Extinction issue.

Shot in Utah´s Valley of the Gods, the film explores loneliness as a state on brink of extinction. Inundated by constant distractions, contemporary life is noise and entropy. This story suggests a form of escape, a safe return to silence and isolation, from which new life will emerge.
