HeroShot VIMFF FreedomFA 1600x800


Director: Goh Iromoto
Origin: Canada
Year of Production: 2017
Duration: 8 min

How do you know if you’ve been living your life to the fullest?

Meet Emily, an avid kayaker who feels most free between water and sky. Shattering the mould that had been cast for her life, she has opted instead to live for herself, listening attentively to her inner voice. For Emily, happiness stems from being in control of her life and her choices – a notion that is put to the test when she faces a situation entirely beyond her control.

When she is suddenly confronted with a situation most hope never to encounter, Emily is forced to consider the choices she’s made, and what she’ll do differently in the next chapter of her life.

Join her as she explores what it means to set herself free.

Director: Goh Iromoto
