Overview

Following an attempt to break the Grand Canyon speed record — chronicled in The Time Travelers (Mountainfilm 2017) — the U.S. Men’s Raft Team continues to explore the limits of what can be done on water. This time, they turn their focus to outrigger canoeing — an ancient form of travel with its own sets of rites, history and cultures. Told through team member Rob Prechtl, (people) of water follows the rafters as they delve into this rhythmic, spiritual and age-old form of connection — discovering that it’s much more than a means of travel.
