Digital Release: SNOWY

SNOWY is available to watch on

It’s so rare to see a fun, uplifting documentary, but Snowy is just that! In Snowy, filmmakers Alex Wolf Lewis and Kaitlyn Schwalje explore whether or not their uncle’s 10-year-old turtle is happy, even traveling to other countries to interview turtle experts! What starts out as a simple question leads to much larger answers. So what do you think? Can turtles experience happiness?

— Jillian Corsie, Programmer


Snowy, a four-inch-long pet turtle, has lived an isolated life in the family basement. With help from a team of experts and his caretaker, Uncle Larry, we ask: Can Snowy be happy, and what would it take?

Directed by Kaitlyn Schwalje, Alexander Lewis Produced by Rebecca Stern, Justin Levy 12 min
