The Race to Alaska

There are no motors and no support – and nobody finishes without a story. THE RACE TO ALASKA follows the visceral experience of racers as they compete in one of the most difficult endurance challenges in the world. Described as “the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning or being eaten by a grizzly bear,” it’s amazing anyone enters at all. It's an adrenaline-fueled, 750-mile boat race from Port Townsend through the dangerous and spectacular wilderness of the Inside Passage, and the film is a raw account of pulling through, again and again – what collective stamina looks like. NR, 99 min.

HALLELUJAH: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song

Singer-songwriter/poet/novelist Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) spent over seven years writing Hallelujah, initially an obscure track on an early 80s album rejected by his record label (“Look, Leonard, we know you’re great, but we’re not sure you’re any good”). Yet it enjoyed a new life in 1991 after being covered by John Cale (Cohen shared over 100 unused verses with him), then Jeff Buckley on his Grace album, and evolved through countless versions to become one of the most beloved songs of all time. This majestic, feature-length documentary is a definitive exploration of Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, the meaning of which has transformed with each popular version. PG-13, 115 min.
