Walla Walla Valley Honda presents a screening of the animated, family-friendly movie Louisa: An Amazing Adventure on Saturday, June 26 at 10AM.
January 12, 1899 was the setting for one of the most astonishing lifeboat recue attempts during one of the worst storms at sea in living memory. Unable to launch directly into the storm, the coxswain of the Louisa lifeboat, decided to haul the lifeboat 13 miles overland to a more sheltered bay in order to rescue a sailing ship. This real life story is dramatically told in Louisa: An Amazing Adventure, and explores the true courage, determination, and extraordinary spirit of ordinary people trying to save the lives of strangers in need. The animation style resembled that of an oil painting brought to life and the adventure is narrated by the coxswain’s daughter, May, voiced by acclaimed actor Celia Imrie (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).
Louisa: An Amazing Adventure is currently touring festivals and recently won Best Animation Feature at the Moscow International Children’s Film Festival.
