Winter Adventure Series Continues with “Paddle to Seattle”
Thursday, March 16, 2017 2:16 PM
The Winter Adventure Series presented by Come Boating!, Belfast’s community boating organization, and Belfast Free Library wraps up on Tuesday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. with a screening of the adventure film “Paddle to Seattle: Journey through the Inside Passage” in the Abbott Room of the library. The documentary follows filmmakers and kayakers Josh Thomas and J.J. Kelley — from Dudes on Media — as they 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; and they encounter deadly — not to mention dead — marine life. Along with interviews of colorful locals, the pair’s stories are threaded together with humor and wit. After the screening, filmmaker Kelley will join the audience via Skype for a discussion and to answer questions. For more information, call the library at 339-3884, extension 10.
