Starting at 8pm in BUEI’s Tradewinds Auditorium, this 2013 French documentary is 1hour and 17min long, directed by Pascal Plisson starring Jackson Saikong, Salome Saikong and Samuel J. Esther.

On foot, on horseback or in a wheelchair, but all with an extraordinary determination.

Tickets cost $7 for students and BUEI/AF members or $12 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased from BUEI’s Oceans Gift Shop.
