The Storm Chaser is a new short film from writer/director Jack Pirie. The film follows storm-chasing legend Thomas Traversa as he embarks on a perilous journey in search of a mythical storm, the likes of which the world has never witnessed. A genre-blurring docu-drama about the profound encounters between humans and nature at its extremes.
