Moscow, ID – NRS is excited to announce the premiere of Remains of a River, a series of ten short documentary films chronicling two friends' journey from the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming to the Pacific Ocean in Mexico following the tenuous trail of the Colorado River system. From October 2011 to January 2012, Will Stauffer-Norris and Zak Podmore hiked and paddled 1,700 miles, filming and narrating on the fly. The resulting films tell an unforgettable story of friendship, adventure and environmental degradation.

“The expedition was ambitious, but the film is even more impressive than the trip,” says Mark Deming, NRS Marketing & Communications. “This series has something for everyone, but what stands out most is the friendship and camaraderie of these guys as they undertake this journey. As the series progresses, viewers will grow more and more attached them as characters.”

Beginning June 29, a new Remains of a River episode will premiere every Friday through August 31 as part of a summer-long NRS Friday Films series.

“The goal of NRS Friday Films is to give paddlers a little dose of lunch-break inspiration going into the weekend,” says Deming. “Sharing videos with each other on Fridays is an informal tradition here at NRS, and we wanted to share that tradition with the larger paddling community.”

Stauffer-Norris and Podmore are currently exploring the Colorado River system beginning at its other source in Rocky Mountain National Park and creating additional films for future release. Learn more about their adventures at downthecolorado.org.
