A special live event screening of award-winning film One Simple Question with a musical performance by the composers, The Accidentals, followed by a discussion with the creative team is coming to Traverse City State Theater on August 28 at 1pm.
In 2014 the citizens of Northern Michigan were invited to be a part of the filmmaking process by participating in a test screening and discussion of the film’s rough cut. With your feedback the film was completed and has been touring the country ever since. It won Made-In-Michigan Film Festival Best Documentary Feature, Mountain Film Seven Summits Award, Blue Ocean Film Festival Best Emerging Filmmaker Finalist, and more.
One Simple Question tells the story of one couple who sheds the comforts of land to begin a life at sea on a small sailboat. Their goal, simple yet elusive, is to sail north until they find the Petermann Ice Island – a record breaking iceberg. The event opens with a musical performance by The Accidentals of Traverse City who composed much of the original film score. The filmmakers will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
