Directed by Ian McCluskey (NW Filmmaker) - Documentary USA

West Coast Premiere, Exclusive Pre-Release Screening

Ian McCluskey will be present!

To anticipation of the high level of audience interest in this film, AIFF will screen this film twice during the film festival.

McCluskey's documentary Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston & Charis Wilson was an Audience Award Winner in 2008.

In 1938, three French adventurers were the first to kayak the great rivers of the American West. Newlyweds Genevieve and Bernard de Colmont, and their friend Antoine de Seynes, were three dashing young Parisians seeking adventure. The Trio travelled from their homes in France, boldly setting out to be the first to kayak the Green and Colorado Rivers.

Seventy-five years after their pioneering journey, filmmaker Ian McCluskey stumbles across a small historic marker in the corner of Wyoming. Inspired by their adventure, Ian learns to kayak, and sets out with two friends to retrace the French Trio's path. Seeing first-hand the places the French experienced, meeting colorful locals along the way, Ian's journey leads him through the heart of the American West and eventually back to Europe.

He uncovers unexpected connections to World War II, the French Resistance, Brigitte Bardot, and the spirit of adventure.
