Join us for, an evening of Ground Truth Trekking films at the Seward library, this Friday the 15th. The doors open at 5:30 PM and show starts at 6:00 with ‘Journey on the Wild Coast’ (45 min), followed by, ‘Where the Heck is Donlin?’ (30 min).
Journey on the Wild Coast, synopsis: A married couple attempt to walk, paddle and ski under their own power from Seattle to the Aleutians along the wild and remote northwest coast of North America. This documentary was filmed with a tiny handheld video camera by the adventurers as they traveled through northern Washington, British Columbia and Alaska. Experience this modern adventure through their eyes as they encounter breathtaking scenery, harsh weather, amazing wildlife, starvation and danger. This expedition demonstrates that the most significant aspect of a trek is not reaching the final destination but how the journey changes the trajectory of the rest of a person’s life.

Where the Heck is Donlin, synopsis: For most Documentarians, a camera, mic, and tripod are the most important equipment. This Alaskan couple (http://www.homernews.com/stories/081011/business_pppf.shtml#.T6AZeN2R6XA) first requires fatbikes, packrafts, and warm sleeping bags to make their film, as they travel hundreds of miles over the rugged terrain of the Alaskan wilderness. Through mosquito tsunamis and sub-zero temperatures, Bjorn and Kim discover firsthand
just how enormous the influences of open-pit gold mining in the roadless wilderness could be.
