This week I am attending the Zonta Film Festival in Kitchener-Waterloo, a festival showcasing films that matter and are inspired by women. 9 films are being screened between November 8-10th, some of which have Q&A’s with the director afterwards. I had the opportunity to interview Lisa Lightbourn-Lay and Rhonda-Marie Avery, the director and the star of 8% No Limit, before their opening night screening.
8% No Limit follows Rhonda-Marie Avery, a woman with 8% vision who sets out to run the entire Bruce Trail. The Bruce Trail is 885km and Rhonda plans to run it in 20 days, with the help of approximately 50 guides. Keep reading to see the full interview!
