According to the website www.journeytoselffilm.com we quote: June’s life story begins in England in 1922 and continues in Africa , Iran , Italy , Greece , Switzerland ,USA and Turkey where she now lives. She was the honourable guest of famous peoples’ tables. She was the neighbour of Hollywood stars along with carettas and kingfishers.
The life of a woman, from a grown girl running in the African savannas, extending to the recital she gave in Milan. She was the neighbor of Elizabeth Taylor and skied with James Bond (Roger Moore).
Her story leads us to follow her as a Captain who sailed alone.
This story that begins in high society and ends, living in a makeshift hut. It is a journey that doesn’t recognize any obstacles; while discussed in parliaments, forced to change laws, within established ministries to include forced demolition of a newly constructed buildings. A splendid story of one who rejected a life, which begun in England and extending to castles on the mountains of Switzerland. In this revised “Journey to Self” she walks away from her life of wealth while embracing as Captain the solitude of open seas in her 14 meter (46 ft.) sailboat: searching for ” Herself ”
June began to live on Iztuzu beach hut in 1983. She intended her search for ” Self ” with new life beginnings which weren’t just for June Haimoff; for also a beach with its thousands of creatures. Breaking the shackles of the system with her emancipated “self ” led to her known global accomplishments recognised when Captain June received Special Honours from The Queen of Great Britain in Buckingham Palace .
“Journey to Self” is a documentary film of wonderful story of this extraordinary adventure, love and discovery. “Journey to Self” will be distributed to all TV channels all over the world and will certainly be a valuable guide for the people of our time as well the future generations to search for their own “Self “s.
