A River Out of Time
USA, Feature Documentary, 2022, 64 min
In 1869, John Wesley Powell – a one-armed Civil War veteran – led his nine men in wooden boats to map the last unexplored river system in America— the Colorado River. They had no maps, no support, no food drops – only hostile native tribes, crew mutinies and dangerous rapids that they could not possibly have imagined. Now, in this rapid-running adventure film, a group of activists relives Powell’s tumultuous, 1000-mile adventure, and gives voice to what the future may hold for the Colorado River and the American West.
What we see is the Colorado River as John Wesley Powell may have envisioned it…
