Old Man River Project is the story of Brett Rogers’ 110-day expedition rowing the entire Mississippi River with four teammates. The team built a historic boat by hand and rowed 4000 kilometers through the heart of America. Along the way they faced fierce storms, inner struggles, portaging their thousand pound boat around 10 dams, and coming face to face with some of the most intense industrial development on the planet - all to raise awareness about drinking water. The expedition and documentary supports the Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper, a water-based charity in Louisiana.
A story by Brett Rogers. Filmed by Doug Copping. Edited by Max Attwood. Music by Sean James Boyer and George Cattapan.
