The Other Side of the Ice
Sunday 7:15 p.m., Nau Auditorium
2012. USA 85 min. Director: Sprague Theobald.
In 2009, Sprague Theobald set sail for the infamous Northwest Passage, the Arctic sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific. Since 1906, a staggering number have died trying. From Newport, RI, through the Arctic, and down to Seattle, it would be a five month trek filled with deadly danger from ice and severe weather. Reuniting his children and stepchildren after a bad divorce more than fifteen years earlier, the family embarked with untold wounds, and unspoken mistrusts. Mother Nature's fury, and personality clashes threatened to tear the crew apart. This is a film of survival, adventure, and ultimately, redemption.
