Iraq Al Amir Women’s Cooperative – TREADRIGHT FOUNDATION

Tucked in the magical mountains of Jordan, covered with secret caves and blessed with a shining stream is the women’s cooperative of Iraq Al Amir. The purpose of our film and adventure with the TreadRight foundation and Celine Cousteau is primarily to highlight these wonderful women who have hidden talents that will warm your hearts and nourish your soul – AND stomach!

The organization was established in 1993 to support job opportunities for women of all ages in Jordan! They pour their love and sincere skills into making fabric, ceramics, soap, paper, and the yummiest food!

Many major travel companies now like Insight Vacations and Uniworld River Cruises visit the cooperative with their tours and whether you join an adventure with them to #maketravelmatter or find yourself on a solo trip to Jordan, please visit Iraq Al Amir! Within moments we were no longer tourists in a land of harsh deserts, but women coming together to support each other! We learned to make all their handy crafts and combine the legendary spices like thyme and turmeric to nourish the body mind and soul.

In a country where the women’s primary role is wife and care giver, Irag Al Amir is gem in the rough that deserves the support and reverence of those who venture to the Middle East to support their dreams and preserve it for future generations to benefit from!

The True Story of Beauty And The Beast OFFICIAL TRAILER

FILM SYNOPSIS:
Alison Teal, Time Magazine’s Female Indiana Jones, sets off to the coast of West Africa for a “surfari” when she suddenly finds herself on a wild and comedic quest that takes her from the middle of a volcano in the Canary Islands to the castle of King Henry II in France, where she uncovers the incredible TRUE STORY behind her favorite childhood fairy tale – Beauty and the Beast.

DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE:
My Alison’s Adventure film series educates through entertainment. Today’s media is bombarded with examples of cyberbullying and physical hatred. This story imparts the lesson that we must not judge a person by their appearance.

GIRL POWER
Like many little girls, I looked up to Belle, our heroine of the story, since she is strong, smart, and driven. With my film and photo series, I hope to inspire women to persevere on their own path to success and happiness. Part of that is not letting the negativity and judgment of others prevent them from achieving their greatest dreams.

HOW WAS THE FILM MADE?
As a one-woman show I wrote, produced, directed, edited and starred in the film with an entirely volunteer local cast and crew!

IS THIS REALLY A TRUE STORY?
Yes! It is challenging to research and prove the specific events and players behind a legend that took place in the 16th century but I did my best. This film is a merger of historical facts and recreated visual imagery to entertain and educate the entire family.

Many mahalos to EVERYONE who made this dream a reality.
