November’s Friday Harbor Film Festival Hosts Three Premiere Films!

The sec­ond annu­al Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val (www.fhff.org) will be held this Novem­ber 7–8-9 on San Juan Island off the coast of Wash­ing­ton State. The Fes­ti­val will fea­ture a total of over 30 award-win­ning doc­u­men­taries and docu-dra­mas over three days in four venues. We are also very proud to announce that the Fes­ti­val will fea­ture the pre­mieres of three films: The Bare­foot Ban­dit Doc­u­men­tary, Frag­ile Waters and Mate­r­i­al of the Future. 

The Bare­foot Ban­dit Doc­u­men­tary (direct­ed by Car­ly Bod­mer) tells the tale of North­west native Colton Har­ris-Moore, fol­low­ing his leg­endary two-year inter­na­tion­al crime spree that cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the nation’s pub­lic and press. The film explores the dynam­ics of his fam­i­ly as well as his per­son­al explo­ration and growth. Colton, a teenage boy who camped in the woods and, wear­ing no shoes, broke into vaca­tion homes, became obsessed with air­planes. His dream of fly­ing and design­ing air­planes became a real­i­ty when he broke out of a halfway house at the age of 15 and stole the first of five air­planes. He sur­vived sev­er­al crash land­ings while fly­ing across the U.S. and even­tu­al­ly land­ed in the Bahamas, where he was arrest­ed. Colton’s cap­tor, lawyer, moth­er and the FBI team that hunt­ed him for two years, tell the almost unbe­liev­able sto­ry of “The Bare­foot Bandit.”

 Frag­ile Waters (direct­ed by Rick Wood) [no need to say it’s pre­mier­ing, since you just said that above!] is a ground-break­ing doc­u­men­tary which makes a very strong case that there’s one time to save our beloved South­ern Res­i­dent killer whales from extinc­tion, and that moment is right now. Filmed by Blaine residents/filmmakers Rick Wood and Shari Macy, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Orca Net­work, Frag­ile Waters explores the rela­tion­ship between peo­ple, whales, water and fish. Focus­ing on the local South­ern Res­i­dent orcas and wild Chi­nook salmon, as well as their envi­ron­ment, the Sal­ish Sea, the film spot­lights the peo­ple – orca experts, fish­er­men, hatch­ery sci­en­tists and Native lead­ers – who are cur­rent­ly work­ing to save both the whales and the salmon in a mul­ti-pronged effort that is aimed at pre­vent­ing an eco­log­i­cal dis­as­ter unpar­al­leled in mod­ern times. And where there are heroes such as these, there is hope.

 Mate­r­i­al of the Future, inspired by the recent dis­cov­ery of the Great Pacif­ic Garbage Patch, tells the trou­bling sto­ry of how plas­tic — the same mir­a­cle mate­r­i­al that has enabled us to land on the moon, rebuild a human heart, curb epi­demics and alter the course of his­to­ry – is now chok­ing our oceans and poi­son­ing our lives. The film offers solu­tions and chal­lenges us rethink our role in the use of plastic.

Films will fea­ture sto­ries of the Pacif­ic Rim, from Chile to Alas­ka.   Our mis­sion is to Enter­tain our film goers, Inspire them to get involved in issues that speak to them, and Enlight­en those in atten­dance to envi­ron­men­tal issues, social con­cerns, human­i­tar­i­an efforts and tales of grand adven­tures. We will be pre­sent­ing awards for the best doc­u­men­tary, best short, best film rep­re­sent­ing each of the Festival’s cat­e­gories (“Tales from the Heart,” “Explor­ers and Adven­tures,” “Issues to Con­sid­er” and “Local Heroes”), as well as host­ing a Film­mak­ers’ Forum and Young Film­mak­ers’ Project.
