In February 2022, Katya Yushmanova and Benjamin Walsh took the trip of a lifetime to the Antarctic Peninsula. Crossing the Drake Passage on the sailboat Spirit of Sydney, they spent the next three weeks exploring Antarctica by kayak. An official selection at the 2023 Dana Point Film Festival, Edge of the Human World chronicles their trip and the surreal experience of being in a place where the troubles of the human world seem both distant and strikingly real.

Benjamin Walsh is a poet and filmmaker based in Vancouver, BC. He never feels more inspired than when he is sitting in a kayak.

Katya Yushmanova is a painter and a landscape architect based in Vancouver. Her passion for adventure has led her to hike, sail, and kayak much of the Pacific Northwest.

Ben and Katya have been members of SKABC since 2015.
