Toward the Source

Toward the Source

A film of self-discovery and awakening told through a 55 day solo canoe journey upriver.

A filmmaker sets out on a solo canoe journey beginning in the Northwest Territories of Canada, traveling for 55 days up the Yellowknife River, across the height of land and down the Snare River to the village of Wekweeti. With time alone in the wilderness and facing the same challenges that the aboriginal inhabitants faced, he attempts to re-establish a sense of the connection with the land.

Toward the Source is a local public television program presented by SO PBS.
