Jason Caldwell - Chasing the Impossible

In 2013, Danville resident Jason Caldwell decided to recruit and train a team for the world's toughest race a -  3,000 mile rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean. Visually spectacular, this documentary follows a four year adventure toward not only winning that race, but breaking the world record for the fastest boat to ever row across the Atlantic. The film depicts not only the race, but Jason's childhood and young adult life. Showing us that where we're from and who we spend our time with, make us who we are. Filled with hope, despair, and the struggle against the impossible, this story is a study in what makes us push our limits. Come watch and celebrate Chasing the Impossible at its premiere screening before it makes makes the rounds in the international film circuit!
