Sam Fathallah is a local filmmaker here in Des Moines. I actually featured him about a year ago and you can read that feature here. Notice I didn't say he's "an aspiring filmmaker," because he's not. Sam is a filmmaker. I've watched this video five times already and the images coupled with that haunting Maya Angelou voice over have resonated within my heart.
I've never been to Iceland, but it kind of feels like I have now. Bravo, Sam.
Contact him here if you need any sort help in the visual department. You'll be in good hands
