ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

More than 17 years in the making, "Legends of the Road" a film documentary by former Sealth teacher Gary Thomsen will make its debut April 7 at the Kansas City Film Festival. The time it has taken to be released is probably the least unusual fact about the film. Legends of the Road offers a comprehensive, inspiring look at bicycle road trip from Seattle to Kansas City, Mo, in 1999 by Thomsen and a select group of students and some players from Victoria BC. Their purpose? To honor the "Barnstorming" tours of athletes in the Negro Baseball League which existed in various forms from the 1870's to the 1950's. Featuring candid, provocative classroom footage and compelling video from the epic trip, the story is both inspiring and historically significant.
