ALASKA AIRLINES―Now Streaming “A Great Ride” In Flight

May 31, 2019July 31, 2019

ALASKA AIRLINES―In recognition of Pride Month, Alaska Airlines will partner with Frameline Film Festival to stream award-winning LGBTQ films in-flight through July 2019.  Featured will be A GREAT RIDE, a 30-minute documentary about Bay Area lesbians confronting the challenge of aging with determination, dynamism, courage and humor. The film follows Sally, a retired women’s studies professor and activist living in a cabin in Northern California; Brenda, an African American political activist in Vallejo; and five residents of a Santa Rosa retirement community: two couples, Nancy and Marjorie and Sue and Patty, as well as Shirley, who is single. In their youth, these women faced the difficulty of coming out. Now they are pioneers as they take on aging, with an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living. Directed by: Deborah Craig with Veronica Duport Deliz Written by: Deborah Craig and Ondine Rarey Edited by: Ondine Rarey Director of Photography: Silvia Turchin Composer: Brad Dujmovic Directors: Deborah Craig & Veronica Deliz 2018 | USA | 33 min|   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOWvQBxbq4Q&feature=youtu.be https://vimeo.com/268670512 A Great Ride is supported by California Humanities through a Community Stories grant.
