REACHING BLUE - A film by RVYC's own Ian Hinkle
Thursday, January 22, 2015
RVYC member, sailor and filmmaker Ian Hinkle will make a special presentation of his new documentary film Reaching Blue to RVYC members and other invited guests.
Reaching Blue was produced by Ian Hinkle and Andy Robertson in association with Ocean Networks Canada and CBC Television. The film has been seen at film festivals from New York to Istanbul, and will screen as a finalist in the Eric Moe Sustainability award program at National Geographic during the Environmental Film Festival in Washington D.C. (March 2015).
By weaving together imagery from above and below our local waters with stories from individuals on the Salish Sea, Reaching Blue connects us to the changes happening in the ocean around us and sparks a dialogue about what these changes mean for our future. From John Steinbeck's old research vessel The Western Flyer, rotting in the back corner of a boatyard, to ocean researchers studying the ocean with cameras 3,000 metres below the sea, Reaching Blue provides a fresh look at the Salish Sea and some of the most important ocean stories of our time.
