Bruce Kirkby : the questions we ask

In this award-winning short film, he contemplates the true meaning of adventure. 

In the spring of 2013, Canadian adventurer Bruce Kirkby crossed the Georgia Straight on an inflatable standup paddleboard (SUP).

"Last summer I paddled SUP from Vancouver to Victoria — a journey of 150 kilometres and 5 days — and  convinced young filmaker Kalum Ko to take a week off highschool and tag along.
The resulting film, which blends my spoken-word narration with KK’s gorgeous visual, evolved from my belief that it wasn’t the specific SUP journey that mattered so much as the though process that lead me to attempt the big crossing.
Ultimately, we explore what adventure is, and why it still matters today.  "
