Mugshots Presents: Paddle To Seattle
"The premiere of the new documentary Paddle to Seattle will be at Mugshots! This will be the FIRST PUBLIC SCREENING of the completed film AND J.J. Kelley will be here to present the film and answer your questions!
How would you get from one side of the world to another without a motor? It’s a question many couldn’t comprehend. But two young adventurers are taking on the challenge. J.J. Kelley and Josh Thomas paddle homemade kayaks 1,300 miles from Alaska to Seattle. The three-month journey is a distance equivalent of Greenland to the UK. Throughout their adventure they attempt to capture the wilderness and culture of the Inside Passage. The project is first ever expedition film project documenting the vast expanse. It is without question the most scenic and challenging paddling trip in North America."
