‘Wild’ Night in Bend

September 3, 2019

$65 – $75

BendFilm is hosting a screening of two independent films celebrating the Pacific Crest Trail and the 50thAnniversary of the Wilderness Act. Filmmakers will be in attendance!

The headlining film, “Only the Essential”, is a truly independent documentary film by former Bend resident, Colin Arsiman.  Arisman and friend Casey Gannon thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail with cameras in hand. “Only The Essential” is the story of their 5 month, 2668 mile journey on foot from Mexico to Canada across the wilderness of California, Oregon, and Washington.  Their goal was to capture the brutal, yet breathtaking, ebb and flow of thru-hiking.  The film serves as a window to experience the Pacific Crest Trail and witness the value of simplifying life to a point where “only the essential” remains.  Arisman and Gannon are scheduled to attend for a post-screening Q&A and a raffle.  (See more information and the trailer here: http://www.onlytheessential.com/watch)

A screening of “The Meaning of Wild” will open the evening.  The film is a half hour documentary film that takes viewers on a journeythrough one of our nation’s wildest landscapes, the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska. The film follows wildlife cameraman Ben Hamilton as he travels by boat, plane, kayak and foot to capture and share the true value of Wilderness. Along the journey, Ben encounters bears, calving glaciers, ancient forests, and harsh seas, but it’s the characters he meets along the way that bring true insight to his mission.  (See more information and the trailer here: http://www.meaningofwild.com/)
