HIBM: Her Inescapable Brave Mission, the Film


HIBM: Her Inescapable Brave Mission, is a documentary film that encapsulates the fear, excitement, ambition, determination, courage, and relentless psychological and physical struggles that come with living with a debilitating progressive disease and breaking down stigma and discrimination to help others.

Cara Yar Khan is a career humanitarian who has dedicated her life to helping the most vulnerable and marginalized children in the world. In this film, Cara will candidly share her most raw and intimate thoughts and feelings about her unexpected life working around the world with the United Nations and living with a debilitating disease  which for all its struggles, led Cara to her calling to serve as a voice for people with disabilities.

Poised at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Cara and her husband John,  along with an award winning entourage of film producers, wranglers and white water rafters, began a 12-day expedition striding on horseback as they descended 5,000 feet of vertical loose terrain into the country’s deepest canyons. Three days later when they entered the heart of the Inner Gorge, they encountered the Colorado River, America’s lifeblood of the West. Here where the water meets the rocks, Cara dismounted from her saddle and set off by raft, for 8 days navigating over 150 miles of the United States’ biggest white water rapids. Throughout this journey, in a harsh and unforgiving wilderness, the expedition challenged and highlighted the integrity of the human spirit, contrasted and framed by the majesty and grandeur of this Natural Wonder.
