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. Reuniting his children and stepchildren after a bad divorce more than fifteen years earlier, the family embarked with untold hurts, and unspoken mistrusts. Mother Nature’s fury, and personality clashes threatened to tear the crew apart. The Other Side of the Ice a film of survival, adventure and ultimately redemption.
Mr. Theobald will be signing books in the MV Film Center lobby beginning at 6:45 pm prior to the screening and afterwards.
Event presented in Collaboration with MVY Radio.
“Fantastical ice sculptures give way to desolate, mountainous, end-of-the-world terrain…”
