   6:30 PM Sense the Wind Filmmaker Screening  
   

Do you think you would be brave enough to sail if you literally couldn't see where you were going? A few years ago, four blind sailors did exactly that. They trained to compete in an international sailing championship for the blind. A new film, Sense the Wind, tells their story.

On Monday, June 26, 6:30pm, the Kingston Council on Aging, Kingston Public Library, Kingston Recreation Department, and the Kingston Yacht Club join together to host a filmmaker screening of Sense the Wind: Blind sailors race across open water.

Six years in the making, Sense the Wind, which follows the journey of four blind sailors as they train and compete in national and international regattas, is making its way around the globe in outreach and beginning distribution. The film was recently given a Humanitarian Award at the Socially Relevant Film Festival NY and recently showed in Tokyo with more regional showings scheduled across the US.

The hour-long documentary will be followed by a Q&A with NY based Producer/Director Christine Knowlton. See a preview here.

This free program will be held at the Council on Aging at 30 Evergreen Street. Pre-registration is required through the Kingston Recreation Department, http://www.kingstonrec.com or (781) 585-0533.
