ADVENTURE FILM CHRONICLES MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDERS IN ARCTIC CIRCLE.

“North of Nightfall” is a must-see for fans of extreme sports and lovers of rugged nature films. The glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, high in the Arctic Circle and generally devoid of human life, provide an environment of harsh temperatures, volatile weather and nine-month winters. But each summer, the frozen landscape flourishes under endless daylight attracting four adventurous mountain bikers who seek to explore and conquer this seemingly inhospitable world. This riveting documentary takes you along with these athletes as they embark on an expedition into this relatively unknown land and its diverse ecological challenge. You’ll hold your breath as you watch them navigate ground-breaking descents unlike anything anyone’s ridden to date. Catch this wild ride at 7:30 p.m. at Castle Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahului. Admission is free. For more information, call 242-7469 or visit www.mauiarts.org.
