This special screening of Sense the Wind will be held at Westchester Community College’s Peekskill Extension Center. The hour-long documentary will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and alumna Christine Knowlton, and instructor Gerry Katzban who created the animated maps and FX.
Blind sailors race across open water learning not to fear what cannot be seen. Sense the Wind is a journey led by four blind sailors—Nancy, Inky, Philip, and Matt—as they train and compete at the Blind Nationals and press towards Japan’s Blind Sailing World Championships. They compete despite risk of a crossing boom, collisions, or falling overboard. On the water, teamwork and intuition take over. Disabilities are no longer the focus. Between seasons, life takes a turn when one gains more than a trophy and must learn to live and sail with new sensibilities. Visit sensethewind.com for trailers and information about the project.
