Appalachian Trail Hike Movie Tonight @ 7:30pm

Pentangle is screening an independent film/documentary  tonight about a trio who hiked through the Appalachian Trail, which, of course, crosses Route 12 in Woodstock. What did the trio learn about themselves along the way? Find out in this rare Thursday night movie showing at the Woodstock Town Hall.

Here is the press release:

We all dream of leaving our lives for some big adventure…but is it worth the risk?

An Appalachian Trail thru-hike takes ambitious hikers on a 2,178.3 mile adventure from Georgia to Maine, trekking through some of America’s most pristine state and national parks. Though many people have attempted this challenge over the years, only a small fraction actually complete the journey. Nevertheless, “The Traveling Circus,” led by 24-yr-old lawyer, Katherine Imp, attempted the Appalachian Trail thru-hike from March to August 2010. Kate was joined by her brother Brandon, a 21-yr-old Ivy grad fresh out of college, and her best friend Emily, a 23-yr-old “city chick” born and raised on Chicago’s South Side.

By capturing the highs and lows of trail life, this honest, touching, and very personal story paints a raw and uncensored picture of how long-distance hiking can affect the mind, body, and soul. Leaving its audience both satisfied and hungry for more, Beauty Beneath the Dirt is a one-of-a-kind documentary that cannot be missed.
