‘Crossing Superior’ at GLMHC

Next in the Sanctuary Cinema Series is “Crossing Superior,” at 7 p.m. Thursday at Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center, 500 W. Fletcher St., Alpena.

The documentary follows a 60-mile journey three men took with their paddleboards across a lake that is often a force to be reckoned with. Eleven-time Emmy award winner Corey Adkins tagged along to document the 22-hour journey with Stand Up for Great Lakes, including encounters with freighters, a permit to do something special over waters restricted by the Canadian government, and the emotional landing at Whitefish Point. Learn why they chose this kind of adventure to raise money for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.
