In the summer of 1938, filmmaker Bernard de Colmont, his new wife Genevieve and their friend, Antoine de Seynes, set off from France on the biggest adventure of their lives. They had a bold, perhaps even foolhardy plan: be the first to take kayaks down the mighty Green and Colorado rivers. 75 years later, Portland filmmaker Ian McCluskey (ELOQUENT NUDE, SUMMER SNAPSHOT) discovered their story and after finding their journals, photographs and 16mm film documenting their journey, (some of the first-ever color film) he decided to retrace their route. Between 1938 and 2012 much changed on the river. And much remains the same, including wild unknowns, overwhelming beauty and explorers documenting their journey.
