Fish & Trips: Two Films & Mini Concert

That’s right – this film block contains films AND music! Go on a fishing trip in “Superior Steel,” then a biking adventure in “Music for Free.” Top it all off with a little concert with filmmaker and musician Ben Weaver. Cheers!


The Films

Superior Steel

  • Year 2018
  • Country USA
  • Runtime 28 min
  • Director Torrin Grange & Andrew Plomer

Every spring in the Upper Peninsula migratory rainbow trout, we have come to know as “steelhead” run up the glacier carved tributaries of Northern Michigan to spawn. A window of only a few weeks a year we are able to pursue these fish in these raging spring fed rivers; melt off from the Huron Mountain Range. It is hard enough to catch these fish but to capture on video is near impossible.

Music for Free

  • Year 2018
  • Country USA
  • Runtime 32 min
  • Director Ben Weaver

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, musician, poet and athlete Ben Weaver set out to ride his bicycle unsupported down the country’s most formidable physical break, the Continental Divide, offering free concerts to those who live, work, and play along this iconic American corridor. Music For Free is the story of his journey to celebrate the people of these communities while pedaling 2800 miles carrying his banjo and guitar. By sharing his music and poetry, Weaver encounters the hidden soul of humanity and uncovers clues that reveal how deeply connected we all are despite what is often portrayed by mainstream media.
