My Midsummer Morning (20 minutes)

In 1935 a young Englishman named Laurie Lee arrived in Spain. He had never been overseas; had hardly even left the quiet village he grew up in. Nearly a century later, the book Laurie Lee wrote – As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning – inspired Alastair Humphreys. It made him fall in love with Spain – the landscapes and the spirit – and with Laurie’s style of travel. For 15 years, Alastair dreamed of retracing Laurie Lee’s footsteps, but could never get past the hurdle of being distinctly unmusical. This year, he decided to go anyway. The journey was his most terrifying yet, risking failure and humiliation every day.

 

LIVE @ Key City Theatre (Saturday, January 8, 2022)

 

A Dog’s Tale (5 minutes – Tour Edit)

2021, Canada. Filmmaker: Darren McCullough, Darcy Wittenburg. Advisory: General.

Can’t Beat This Place For Fun (14 minutes)

2020, USA. Filmmaker: Dawn Kish, John Tveten. Advisory: General.

This film is a small vignette of Fretwater Boatworks, a very unique boat crafting shop that keeps the tradition of wooden dory building alive whilst honoring the dreams of Grand Canyon pioneer Martin Litton. These beautiful boats still represent advocacy toward wild places compromised and/or lost.

Hailing from the remote village of Alert Bay, British Columbia snowboarder Spencer O’Brien dedicated her life to becoming a world champion. But, being driven to win came at a cost.
