Friday, April 20th, 7:00pm – Hot Springs Welcome Center   Along 2,100 miles and across 14 states, Brill and the thousands of other men and women who have followed the white blazes ultimately discover that the life one left behind is far less defining than the one that stretches ahead.  As Far as the Eye Can See recounts Brill’s AT journey of the late 1970s and notes the significant role that Hot Springs played in his own awakening.
