The mission: build five boats from scratch and embark on a Huckleberry Finn-like adventure down the Murray River! This was the goal that the 'River 2 Recovery' group set for themselves two years ago. In conjunction with St Luke's and Wodonga TAFE, a diverse group of people with mental health challenges came together to learn new skills, build networks, get fit and have an adventure. In this short doco, they share some insights into their 225km adventure and what drove them to do it. The film was collaboratively written, filmed, sound recorded and edited by participants of the 'River 2 Recovery' program.
Producer: Suzi Taylor, ABC Open Albury-Wodonga
