Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

‘Into the Silent Sea,’ a 25-minute short to be shown in a 6 to 9 p.m. session of the Breckenridge Film Festival on Friday, Sept. 19, packs plenty of emotion into a brilliantly acted production. Russian cosmonaut Alexander is adrift in orbit around Earth while on a secret mission in the early days of the space race. He has lost communications with his ground-support station and his life-support systems are dwindling fast. He manages to make contact with an Italian radio engineer working the night shift. The two men bond as the engineer works diligently to save the life of a man he’s never met. Flashbacks show viewers Alexander’s history, one ripe with romance with a fellow female cosmonaut and a complex and uncontrollable set of circumstances that led to Alexander’s plight. The Breckenridge Film Festival takes place Thursday, Sept. 18, through Sunday, Sept. 21 in Breckenridge. Learn more about this and other films at
