Seven Miles to Shore at Fort Tilden
A last showing of resident John Sica’s film “Seven Miles to Shore” is set to take place in Fort Tilden.
On Saturday, November 2nd at 7 p.m., residents are invited to watch a screening of the film at the T7 Gallery in Fort Tilden. The film tells the story of what happened on October 29, 2012, including the heroic acts of Dylan Smith.
Smith saved six people on his surfboard as fire destroyed homes in Belle Harbor. He lost his own life in a surfing accident in Rincon, Puerto Rico less than two months later.
Sica’s hour-long film made its Rockaway debut in April to a packed house at the Knights of Columbus. It has been screened at several other events since, including the Rincon International Film Festival.
The last screening is taking place at the Rockaway Artists Alliance gallery, which is currently displaying a Sandy art exhibition called “Calm, Storm, Rebirth.” The exhibit opened on October 26th, just before the first anniversary of the storm and will be open on weekends from 12 to 4 p.m. until November 24th.
