A portrait of a woman who gave up her conventional life to become a hermit artist.

Ingrid Gipson had a successful career as a fashion designer in Dallas in the 1980s, but gave up her career – and her children – to move off the grid to live alone on a farm in Oklahoma. Now 74 years old, the German immigrant is observed in her daily routines, from taking care of her livestock to making art out of nature. Maltz’s project is beautifully shot and deliberately paced, conveying a fascination for her intriguing protagonist. That said, while still somewhat appealing, at under an hour, the film never digs deep enough to become a satisfying whole.
