Almost one year to the day since Alex last blogged about our adventurous friends from Epicocity, we’d like to say CONGRATULATIONS to Trip and his crew for winning the Best Professional Documentary award at the 2009 National Paddling Film Festival .
“A River’s Last Breath” follows two rafters through the great Bend of China’s Yangtze River as they help people understand and see for themselves how important it is to protect China’s rivers. This paddling film is different than most because… “the rafters will not be the first to paddle this white water gem, due to a series of 3 large dams currently under construction, they will be the last.” Watch footage from this award winning documentary in our video Rivers in Demand and see for yourself the dramatic landscapes that will soon be under 150 meters of water.
I tried contacting Trip to say congratulations, but he’s on a 22 day trip through the Grand Canyon. I’m looking forward to watching footage from his trip down a river with a long healthily life ahead of it.
