Darcy Hennessey Turenne

A former world-class pro freeride mountain biker, Darcy Hennessey Turenne’s athletic exploits have been featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, including Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal. Turenne is a staple in the outdoor, environmental and action sports communities, but her work extends far beyond the sports world, ranging from quirky shorts, and feature-length docs to commercial spots for clients like Audi and Patagonia. Her film Elle Aime was a Vimeo “Staff Pick” and chosen as a Vimeo “Best of the Year.” Her first full-length feature film, The Moment (Mountainfilm 2018), has a deeply personal connection as it is an ode to the history and pioneers who paved the way for her to have a career doing what she loved as a professional athlete and action sports filmmaker. Turenne most recently co-directed North Shore Betty (Mountainfilm 2022) alongside Travis Rummel, and The Ocean Solution (Mountainfilm 2022).
