Northwest Tracking: MENDING THE LINE w/ special guests in attendance!

Mending the Line2

Tough as nails, gentle as a poet, and determined as a badger, 90-year-old Frank Moore has always loved to fly fish. Back in 1944, he landed with 150,000 other troops on the beaches of Normandy, France, for the D-Day invasion. Despite the war around him, he couldn’t help but notice the fishing potential of the rivers he and his fellow troops crossed as they made their way into France. Seventy years later, reflecting on his life, Moore is compelled to return to Normandy, this time armed not with a gun but with fly rod and reel. Waller’s inspirational film follows Moore on his arduous physical and emotional journey from home on the North Umpqua River, where for years he has fished and tended the famed Steamboat Inn, to the battlefields of his youth. (70 mins.)

Director John Waller will introduce the film.  Subjects Frank and Jeanne Moore will also attend the screening.

 

MENDING THE LINE screens Wednesday, July 30 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our ongoing Northwest Tracking series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
