BACK WATER

a film about the changing nature of wilderness
synopsis

Back Water

BACK WATER: In the middle of New Jersey exists a strange landscape of wetlands and wildlife migrations, garbage dumps and the ruins of industry, toxic waste sites and a river that tells the story of a civilization’s new frontier. That is what seven young people have chosen to paddle through for 10 days, in canoes... A singular expedition, as romantic as it is political.
