The International Emerging Talent Film Association (IEFTA) presents a work in progress of BEYOND THE RAGING SEA, followed by a panel discussion at Cannes Film Festival 2018. A collaboration of DHL, UNHCR, UNDP, and IEFTA, this documentary follows the harrowing ordeal of two Egyptian athletes OMAR SAMRA and OMAR NOUR #Rowing4Refugees in the Atlantic Challenge across the open ocean - as an ultimate test of endurance.
