11m/USA/2016/World Premiere

Director: Sarah Cordial

Writers: Sarah Cordial

Producers: Sarah Cordial and Blair Hammond

Starring: Laura Ingalls


On May 4, 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 by 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 does not dictate one’s future, and prove that everyday people are capable of making extraordinary strides in the fight against the problems facing the world today.

Be Relentless is the binational, bilingual, feature-length documentary that captured every grueling step of Norma’s record-breaking expedition across two countries. Through Norma’s persistence, Be Relentless proves that everyday people can make an extraordinary impact in seemingly unchallengeable issues.

Be Relentless will capture conversation about the realities of child trafficking, inspire the world to address this issue, prevent what happened to Norma from happening to others, and prove to survivors and the to world that one’s past doesn’t dictate one’s future.
