Seattle Premiere with Local Filmmaker Q&A! In the summer of 1969, two best friends leave their small Michigan hometown on one final adventure: a 1,300 mile bike ride around the gargantuan Lake Superior. With only rusted old, two-speed Schwinn bicycles and limited preparation, they face hunger, exhaustion, and the kind of people in the world who never wanted to be found.

Special guests with Q&A | Northwest Film Forum's 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival presents Promised Land, a social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they've long been denied. Tribal members will be present for a Q&A on tribal sovereignty. A portion of the ticket proceeds go towards helping the tribes continue their fight for justice. The filmmakers will be in attendance.
