Breckenridge Film Fest features ‘Afghan Cycles’ documentary, other outdoor-related films
September 18, 2018
Along with the screening of Breckenridge producer Shannon Galpin's "Afghan Cycles" feature documentary – to be shown on Saturday at 10 a.m. at Colorado Mountain College — the Breckenridge Film Festival will have other sports and outdoors-related offerings.
Here are the details on three of those, including when they'll be shown.
What: "Andy Irons: Kissed By God"
When: Friday, 7:30 p.m. at Breckenridge Riverwalk Center
Three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons was an incredible presence on the world stage as the "People's Champion." He was the pride of Hawaii and revered around the world for his blue-collar rise to fame and success. However, many were unaware of the internal battles that led to his demise. This Teton Gravity Research film is about bipolar disorder and opioid addiction as seen through the surfer's life.
What: "Live the Stream: The Story of Joe Humphreys"
Recommended Stories For You
When: Saturday, noon at CMC
There are few living legends in the sport of fly fishing and at 86 years young, there's no one quite like Joe Humphreys. "Live the Stream" follows the charming teacher, author, mentor, athlete and environmental activist on and off the water as he shares the sport he loves with others. From teaching youth to helping veterans, to going after personal records to spearheading a conservation dream, this intimate portrayal is a tribute to the power of positive influence, the richness of family and friends, and Joe's invitation to stop into his fountains of youth — the streams.
Humphreys will be in attendance at the film and will also conduct a book signing on Friday afternoon at Breckenridge Outfitters. He'll also be doing a fly-fishing demo on the Blue River on Saturday following the screening.
What: "The Frenchy"
When: Saturday, 4:30 p.m. at The Speakeasy Theater
Jacques "The Frenchy" Houot is a Colorado icon. He is an 82-year-old athlete who gets after it non-stop on skis, mountain bike and the cyclocross race-circuit. He is an accomplished athlete, but the real story is how he inspires us with his contagious love of life and epic tales of survival. Houot will be in attendance.
