An Instructional Film with a Brain and a Soul!
24 February 2006 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Just an instructional film about how to paddle a canoe, right? This was a great opportunity to produce something dry and clinical that once you've taken in the instruction it offers will never want to see it again. Just like a typical driver's Ed. film or one of those classics we all saw in Health class. However, Bill Mason brings his sense humor and reverence for nature along and makes it a good watch.

The instructional content is presented using a graphic imposed over the footage, such that what you are being shown is easy to understand, despite the complexity of some of the strokes. The scenery is awesome as well.

Bill Mason very much loved nature as experienced from a canoe, and it really shows here.

It's more than how to paddle a canoe: it's also Why!
