Adventure film screening: ‘Paddle to Seattle...’

Posted:  Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 2:00pm

BELFAST — The Winter Adventure Series, presented by Come Boating!, Belfast's Community Boating Organization and the Belfast Free Library, wraps up on Tuesday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. with a special screening of the adventure film, Paddle to Seattle: Journey through the Inside Passage. The showing will be in the Abbott Room of the library and is free and open to all.

Paddle to Seattle is a documentary that follows filmmakers and kayakers, Josh Thomas and J.J. Kelley – from Dudes on Media – as they masterfully navigate the 1,300-mile Inside Passage, traveling through waters that border North America's largest temperate rainforest.

Brown bears guard the shores. Rain pelts them for weeks without rest. They even encounter deadly, not to mention dead, marine life. Enriched with interviews of colorful locals, Thomas’ and Kelley's stories are threaded together by their unconventional humor and wit. Ultimately, this is a story about friendship and how it survives the... Paddle to Seattle.

After the screening, Thomas and Kelley will join the audience via Skype for a discussion and to answer questions. For more information call the library at 339-3884 ext. 10.
