76 Days Rough Cut Test Screening

 

Friday, Aug. 12, 2022  7:30 PM

Strand Theatre in Rockland, Maine

Tickets $10

The film tells the true story of Steven Callahan's epic survival ordeal based on his New York Times bestselling book, "Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea."In 1982, Steven Callahan set out to sail solo across the Atlantic. On the journey, his boat sank. Within minutes, his small craft was flooded with a rush of water. He grabbed what he could, heaved his life raft into the ocean, and snatched his emergency kit. For an incredible 76 days, he drifted across the Atlantic Ocean before being rescued.

Q&A with Steven Callahan and executive producer, Robert Sennott will follow screening.
