The REEL Outdoors Film Series screens it penultimate film of the season, Blood Road, Friday, September 21, 7:30 PM, at the newly renovated Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH.
Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 arduous miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their Goal: to reach the newly discovered crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos some 40 years earlier.
The final film of the REEL Outdoors Series, The Moment, will screen October 19. This film is the origin story of a small movement of mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head. This is a story that has never been told, told by the people who lived it firsthand.
Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy the No Man’s Land Film Festival Friday, September 28. No Man’s Land is an all-woman adventure short film festival engaged in enhancing the female presence in the adventure arena.
General Admission tickets for Blood Road are $10, $8 for Colonial members. All tickets are sold at the door. Concessions include beer and wine, organic popcorn, fine chocolates coffee and tea.
