Reaching Blue Film Showing – March 17

REACHING BLUE, a film about Climate Change in the Salish Sea, will be shown on Friday March 17th, 6:30 pm, at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, at 2333 San Juan Avenue, Port Townsend. Local 20/20 is one of the many co-sponsors of the film.

There will be a Q&A discussion with filmmaker and former Port Townsend resident Ian Hinkle. A reception at 8:00 PM will offer local oysters, smoked salmon, cheese, cider and other treats provided by some of our 15 co-sponsors. There will also be information tables from some of the supporting organizations, including Local 20/20. Stop by!

Tickets are $10.00 and are available through Brown Paper Tickets, at the Port Townsend Food Co-op, and after each Sunday service at the Fellowship, March 5th & 12th. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Free childcare will be available.

About the film: A poet, an oyster farmer, and an ocean scientist on the Pacific coast face the impacts of climate change, while finding hope for the future beneath the Salish Sea. With lessons from John Steinbeck’s research vessel Western Flyer in Port Townsend to remote islands of the B.C. coast, REACHING BLUE crosses the Salish Sea to ask the question: do we have the knowledge and technology to understand ocean change, and perhaps most importantly, do we have the will to act?

REACHING BLUE was produced and directed by Ian Hinkle and Andy Robertson, with support from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and Ocean Networks Canada at the University of Victoria, and has been shown at dozens of festivals around the world.
