Shextreme kicks off with the South West premiere of Jen Randall (Psycho Vertical) and British adventurer Sarah Outen’s hotly anticipated new feature. This exciting documentary follows Sarah on her five year, 20,000 mile, human-powered journey as she traversed the globe by bike, kayak and rowing boat.
Faced with several challenges from terrifying tropical storms at sea to broken boats, Sarah’s heroic odyssey outwards becomes a gripping journey inwards. She bravely reveals an unflinching insight into trauma, including PTSD, whilst battling a broken vessel and spirit in her quest to follow one neat line around the world.
Award-winning adventure filmmaker Jen Randall expertly edits and sensitively refines Sarah’s reams of raw footage to reveal the kind heart and soul of this epic story. Transcending the physical journey, this empowering documentary explores the meaning of home and celebrates one woman’s trek towards true emotional acceptance.
Followed by a Q&A with Sarah Outen. Join us in the Bar after the Q&A for the Shextreme Opening Night Party.
We're also delighted to welcome Joanna Jones, the winner of Shextreme Adventure Poetry Competition. Named an Emerging Writer 2018 by Literature Wales, Joanna will perform a live reading of her winning adventure poem Running Away from Your Problems is Harder at Altitude, written whilst adventuring and running in Bolivia.
