We celebrate DocLands’ Closing Night with a screening of the inspirational film THE WEIGHT OF WATER, with director Michael Brown and renowned blind climber and kayaker, Erik Weihenmayer in attendance for Q&A at the Smith Rafael Film Center. THE WEIGHT OF WATER is the story of a blind adventurer taking on an absurdly improbable challenge, kayaking the Grand Canyon. He desires the elusive state of being that so many of us seek, to be engaged in the present moment. Erik is a sought after motivational speaker, the first blind person to reach the summit of Everest, and the only blind person to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents. For this feat on Mount Everest, he was honoured with a TIME Magazine cover story.
After the film, enjoy the Closing Night Party in downtown San Rafael. Celebrate DocLands by capping the night off with fellow film lovers and take in more films all day Sunday!
