Adam Nawrot thinks of himself as an outdoor storyteller. Though his first love is cycling, he is also an avid climber and paddler and his filmmaking is never too far removed from his adventurous spirit. Based in New York, Nawrot cut his teeth as a cameraman and photographer, but now operates his own production company, Sourland Studios, with Sonia Szczesna. He has contributed to both Climbing and Canoe & Kayak magazines using satirical illustrations and descriptions that only a true insider could capture. His first directorial feature film, Godspeed, Los Polacos! (Mountainfilm 2021), tells the story of Polish college students who find themselves on a two-year kayaking expedition in the Americas with little to no whitewater skills.
