Transcending the Storm
World Premiere

Transcending the Storm is an inspirational story of a Scotsman attempting to leave an alcoholic and violent past behind and follow his dreams. Finding himself on the brink of death in a Scottish hospital, Filmmaker Stephen Mulhearn has a transcendent experience and embarks on a life-transformative quest. He tracks down a mystic, whom he met in the tunnel of light during his near-death experience, and is guided on a remarkable journey. From the deserts of New Mexico to the ancient city of Machu Picchu, he receives powerful insights from shamans that free him from the ghosts of his past. Ancient ceremonies and rites of passage lead him back to his own roots. Returning to Scotland, his quest concludes on the top of an ancient Druid mountain where he finally discovers the secret of transcending suffering. Will this changed man be accepted in his old world, or will the demons of his past drag him back down? The answer is a triumph of the human spirit which echoes the great quest before us all.

A Q&A with director Stephen Mulhearn will follow.
