Be Relentless is a film and human rights campaign that will engage and empower audiences like never before, encouraging empathy and understanding between Mexico and the United States, two countries connected and divided by a shared border. In this unique and urgent time, the problem of human trafficking can only be solved when countries work together - Be Relentless is a catalyst for this collaboration.
On May 5, 2014, Norma Bastidas, a single mother and fearless survivor of human trafficking, sexual violence, abuse and addiction, shattered the Guinness World Record for longest triathlon—running, biking and swimming 3,762 miles (6,054 km) from Cancún, Mexico to Washington D.C. as her stand against human trafficking. Norma's mission is to educate and empower, demonstrating to the world that one's past doesn't dictate one's future.
“Ultras are tough, both physically and emotionally, but the challenge is only temporary. After I finish an ultra, my life goes back to normal, but survivors have to keep overcoming huge challenges every day of their lives.” - Norma Bastidas
Be Relentless is a feature-length documentary project, social movement, and human rights campaign. Proceeds will fund prevention and restoration efforts benefitting vulnerable and victimized children.
“Be Relentless is an impressive work, along with your programs and archives etc, will certainly be a formidable experience to awaken more people to the travesty that is trafficking. It will encourage more survivors, give those so motivated a path to participate and bring forth legions of stories to help burst the dam of ignorance, denial, stigma, and darkness." -Gary Goldstein (Award-Winning Producer/Writer)
