Eau Claire (Press Release) - In the summer of 2009, filmmakers Phillip Hullquist and Ryan Jeanes embarked on a 2,300 mile journey down the entire length of the Mississippi River.
Armed with a high-definition video camera, two paddles, two inflatable kayaks and their wits (or lack thereof), the pair aimed to be the first to document a real-life epic journey down America's greatest and best-known waterway.
An American tale, a family tale, a story of danger, friendship and redemption everyone can enjoy, "The River is Life" will tug on your heartstrings and sound the call to adventure. So grab an oar and meet an incredible cast of characters, face danger with 4-foot boat wakes, oceanic lake crossings and monstrous barges, meet the people of the river as you stay in their homes and live their hospitality… and quirkiness. Journey North to South on the legendary Mississippi River and live an adventure you will never forget. "The River is Life" is airing Wednesday night August 25th at the residence of Jody Hagedorn. The address is 2318 Melonie Ln.
