After a sold out NZ Premiere, The team at Paddle for the North are back with a second screening!
Come celebrate the 5-year adventure to create Paddle for The North. Join Directors Simon Lucas & Cinematographer Scott Sinton and the team at Sitka NZ for the screening of the award-winning film and a Q & A of the trip and film-making.
Deep in the Canadian North, six young guys embarked on an epic adventure – to explore some of the most remote and untouched rivers in the world. Four Canadians, two Kiwis, two dogs (Zephyr & Taiger), three boats and two hundred pounds of camera equipment on a 63-day mission – it was always going to be a mighty test of endurance, determination, and friendship.
But beyond the swarming mosquitoes, technical challenges, and physical hardship, what they
didn’t expect was the impact of the stories from one First Nations family. This chance encounter introduced them to people so tightly tied to the land and the river that they live on, and showed the team, that the Peel Watershed debate, is not just about protecting the environment, but also a way of life.
A boys-own adventure turns into a mission to truly discover the secrets of the north and show the world why some places are worth preserving.
