FILM:  The Crossing

FILM: The Crossing

October 16 / Renaissance Park / 7:00pm

SYNOPSIS
A feature documentary following two young Australians, as they set off on the adventure of a lifetime. The pair attempted to drag their home-made kayaks more than one thousand kilometres across a remote island in the arctic. Equal parts rock n' roll and youthful exuberance, resulting in disaster. They battled freezing temperatures, knee-deep mud, razor-sharp rocks, got chased by wolves and hid from polar bears.

Edited from a hundred hours of stunning high definition footage shot by the pair, 'The Crossing' is an insight into the minds of two young adventurers biting off far more than they can chew. This story is an antidote to a world of instant gratification, showing that you can achieve anything - but sometimes there ain't no easy way.
