Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Orca” showing Oct. 6-11 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
Her life. Her freedom.
The Iranian drama “Orca” follows Elham, a young divorced Iranian woman seeking to find herself after a near-fatal attack by her husband.
Elham finds salvation in the water, becoming a formidable endurance swimmer. In the fight of her life, Elham faces political, religious and personal obstacles in search of her goal: the Guinness record for the longest distance swim with her hands tied.
