A Woman’s Epic Journey to Climb 7 Mountains—Shot on a Phone

This stunning short, filmed on an iPhone, profiles National Geographic Emerging Explorer. Wasfia Nazreen. Nazreen is the first Bangladeshi to climb the Seven Summits in an effort to empower her country’s women and girls. Produced by RYOT in association with Apple, the film offers an inside look at Nazreen’s high-altitude training and meditation practice of “surrendering to the climb.”

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
