We hope you can join us next Wednesday, for a special film presentation, which will benefit Friends of mvyradio.
You may remember that in the summer of 2009, we were following the travels of Sprague Theobald, a Newport-based documentarian, as he and his crew navigated the Northwest Passage. His film is now complete, and will screen on Martha's Vineyard.
In 2009, Sprague Theobald and his family set sail for the infamous Northwest Passage, the Arctic sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. Since 1906 a staggering number have died trying. From Newport, RI, through the Arctic and down to Seattle, it would be a five month, 8500 mile trek filled with deadly danger from ice and severe weather. Theobald created a film about his experience and has also written a book – both titled “The Other Side of the Ice”.
Come see this incredible film on Wednesday, September 25th at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center – part of the proceeds will benefit Friends Of mvyradio! Doors will open at 6:45 for the 7:30 screening with a book signing before the film and a Q&A after with the author and filmmaker.
