In Company With:a racing ballet

"I've never had sex before but I think if I did it would feel like this."

​Janet Guthrie was the first woman ever to qualify for the Indianapolis 500. 15 year old Rosie is obsessed with her. she dreams of racing cars. her father won't allow it. when the ghost of her mother appears in the form of her hero, Rosie is forced to make the choice between her dreams and her father. Oscillating between Rosie's reality and her dreamspace, In Company With:a racing ballet asks us to question what it means to want for something + the power a legacy can hold.
