The Other Side of The Ice by Sprague Theobald

Badge finalist Finalist for The Film Skillet 2013 Documentary Film Contest in Documentary

In 2009, Sprague Theobald and his family set sail for the infamous Northwest Passage, the Arctic sea route connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. Since 1906 a staggering number have died trying. From Newport, RI, through the Arctic and down to Seattle, it would be a five month, 8500 mile trek filled with deadly danger from ice and severe weather.

Reuniting his children and stepchildren after a bad divorce more than fifteen years earlier, the family embarked with untold hurts, and unspoken mistrusts. Mother Nature's fury, and personality clashes threatened to tear the crew apart. The Other Side of the Ice a film of survival, adventure and ultimately redemption.

A story of courage and determination. The documentary captures both the beauty and danger of a part of the world that most of us will only see through photographs. Working together through treacherous conditions, Theobald's family reunites. The result is a triumphant ending for a family and an adventure.
