Sustainable Cinema Series features “Paddle to Seattle” Thursday, November 29 at 6:30 pm
Dragonfly Cinema, 822 Bay Street Port Orchard

(Port Orchard) - An Inside Passage journey from Alaska to Seattle shows off the fantastic scenery of the region. The film’s intrepid heroes, J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas built plywood kayaks for their 97-day trip between the islands of the Alexander Archipelago and the rainforest of the Tongass National Forest. Along the 1,300 miles, they filmed everything - brown bears, whales and other marine life, along with the people that call the land their home. The adventure also illustrates the effects of isolated travel in a vast wilderness; the moments of humor often result from the months of solitary exposure to one another.

Dick D’Archangel will lead the post movie discussion this month. Dick has been boating all his life and began his kayaking in the Northwest nearly 30 years ago. He has experienced a variety of adventures from the Inside Passage to the Oregon coast. Dick is a member of the Raven Canoe Family, an active board member and past president of Friends of Miller Bay, Vice-President of the Great Peninsula Conservancy and board member of the Jay Hawk Institute.

The Sustainable Cinema Series offers films to stimulate community discussion regarding issues we care about. Kitsap County Commissioner Charlotte Garrido sponsors the series, held at the Dragonfly Cinema in downtown Port Orchard at 822 Bay Street. A $5 donation is suggested. The film is appropriate for all ages.
