Tonight I attended the Ocean Film Festival with Sarah, Dan, Megs, Lena, Jayden and Kobie. It presented a series of ocean-themed short films shot over the last year. Of the eight films shown, my favourite two were: (1) a film created by a group of French guys who built a boat out of natural materials and gave it over to one of them to sail around the Bay of Bengal, all the while trying to learn how to be self-sufficient by using environmentally friendly methods for growing food on board, cooking and purifying sea water; and (2) a film created by Justine Curgenven about her and Sarah Outen’s perilous sea kayak journey across the Aleutians between Russia and Alaska, during which they battled harrowing weather, currents and bears to become the first people to complete the journey in recent times. Inspiring stuff! Makes you want to do something crazy like quit your job, buy a bicycle and cycle around the world.
