An athlete in his prime, finds the treacherous and frozen terrain of Iceland to be far less dangerous a setting than the confines of his Mexico hotel room.
I AM HERE is a riveting and resonant docudrama feature film, based on a true story about addiction and triumph in the face of adversity.
In the winter of 2021, three adventure athletes (Chris Burkard, Rebecca Rusch, and Angus Morton) set out to become the first expedition team ever to voyage from the northernmost point to the southernmost point of Iceland in the dead of winter. The dangerous and harrowing journey was gorgeously captured by an intimate film crew.
But for one of the riders, the adventure in Iceland paled in comparison to the adversity that lay ahead.
On his way home from that unprecedented journey, Angus— a champion Australian cyclist and recovering alcoholic— found himself trapped in Mexico for two weeks due to a visa issue. Stuck, but riding high from his recent adventure, Angus becomes caught in a battle with the personal demons he thought he had left behind in Iceland.
Spiraling and alone, Angus relapsed in a hard and heavy way, tragically and ironically on the heels of one of his greatest athletic victories. Far from home, with no cavalry en route, it would now be up to him to find the strength to pull himself back together.
As of June 10th, this project has raised $41,000 of their $180,000 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise the $180,000 or it will not be funded.
