Free screening tonight: Out of the Mist, Olympic Wilderness Stories

The Seattle screening of Out of the Mist, Olympic Wilderness Stories, a documentary about the Olympic Peninsula, is tonight at the Mountaineers Program Center at 7700 Sand Point Way. Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7:30.

Out of the Mist chronicles the life experiences of four people who share their deep love of the Olympics, including poet Tim McNulty.

Filmed over several years of hiking and backpacking in some of the most remote wilderness areas of the Olympics, the film is a visual feast.

The film, by Crest Pictures, has been playing to big crowds in Tacoma, Bremerton and Port Angeles. Presented on behalf of the Wild Olympics Campaign, the show is sponsored by the National Parks Conservation Association, Olympic Park Associates and other backers of the campaign to designate new wilderness and scenic rivers in the Olympics.
