About the event
This is the North Devon premiere of Paddling the Margins, an adventure and sustainability film shot in the Pacific Northwest, but born in North Devon.
Project leader Jack Hampton grew up in Barnstable and learnt to paddle as part of Bideford Canoe Club. The North Devon coast and North Devon kayakers played a central role in the team’s training as they prepared to take on an epic unsupported paddle down the whole west coast of Canada in folding skin-on-frame kayaks.
As Jack and his team traversed the wild coastline, they conducted interviews with local people about how climate change and the green transition have affected the lives and livelihoods of those living in coastal communities. The film aims to capture these challenges and identify solutions relevant to coastal communities in the UK.
Please come from 7.30pm to grab a drink in the bar before the screening begins at 8pm. The film is 1 hour long followed by a Q&A session with members of the expedition.
