NRS Launches Latest Canoe Inspired Documentary “Wood on Water”

- Advertisment -

The latest film from NRS rolled out online with the premiere of Wood on Water, “a story about a traditional, slow, strenuous, and all-female adventure. 40 days spent canoe tripping in the Canadian wilderness using leather tumplines, wooden wannigan boxes, hand-carved canoes, and real food cooked over open fires.”

“It’s also about the joy of nature and what happens when young women and teenagers get together far from the stresses of everyday life,” says the iconic brand and media producer.

Established in 1893, Keewaydin is one of the oldest operating summer camps in North America. And while it looks much the same as it did in the early 1900s, merely 20 years ago something major changed: girls were allowed to go ‘tripping.’ As a filmmaker, Hannah Maia was interested in how something established more than a century ago to promote manliness and “roughing it in the woods” could be relevant for teenage girls today. And so, she did what any good filmmaker would do, she joined their expedition.

This is a story about a traditional, slow, strenuous, and all-female adventure. 40 days spent canoe tripping in the Canadian wilderness using leather tumplines, wooden wannigan boxes, hand-carved canoes, and real food cooked over open fires.

From candid interviews and raw footage, reflective moments and internal musings, Wood on Water demonstrates history and tradition woven into the modern teenage girl’s attitude. It’s a story of many threads as it follows the journey of nine teenagers, two guides and a filmmaker on an epic canoe trip through northern Quebec.
