IRONSELF, 20min., Canada, Doc Adventure
Directed by Tinthi Tembo
After a near death overnight hiking experience, Eman – a Queer Egyptian hiker, shares their healing journey of re-exploring the magnificent mountains of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples (also known as British Columbia Canada). Through the power of vulnerability, compassion and community, Eman ventures to the same overnight hike 4 years later. A redemption story – nothing is too far fetched.
“IronSelf” is a hiking story which authentically portrays the journey of healing through community, vulnerability, and triumph. There is currently a paradigm shift within storytelling and there is a calling for our stories to be shared with greater audiences. This documentary celebrates the visibility of Black & Queer femmes in the outdoors and most of all self-discovery through community. My vision is that this story will implore audiences across all cultures to feel activated and try an activity they have never envisioned themselves doing.
