About RAFTING & GUIDING on the RIVER!
|Latest Movie about rafting is a blast from the past dedicated to the 70's rafting genre.
"THE SAME RIVER TWICE" "PIERCINGLY POIGNANT...then-and-now portrait of five friends who worked as summer guides on the Colorado River in the 1970's. As the movie flashes back and forth between a carefree summer excursion and the former river guides as they are today, the aura of collective happiness in the clips - of the group dancing naked, canoeing and rafting through whitewater rapids and singing by a campfire - is so palpable it puts a lump in your throat." (Critics Pick)-Stephen Holden, The New York Time
"In 1978, on a breath-taking trip in the Grand Canyon, filmmaker Robb Moss and a group of free-spirited friends and lovers took a month-long trip down the Colorado River. Cutting between footage of their youthful, often naked, unscheduled lives and the complex realities of their adulthood today, the film creates a compelling portrait of cultural metamorphosis. From running rapids to running for mayor, The Same River Twice is a story of change, choices, and of finding one's place in the world."

|OPINIONS & COMMENTS:
I think I loved this movie because I thought it was about my river trip on the Grand Canyon. Yes, we got naked, too!
Something about long hair, hippie culture and going down the river seem to have cultivated a bond between people that I have never experienced before. These same people are still in my life. We may not socialize as much anymore, but I would do anything for this group of people if they ever asked.
Rafting on rivers is a compelling activity that has addicted more people than I could ever imagine. For those of you who experienced those wonderful 70's and 80's will be moved to tears when you watch this film. It will bring back a lot of fond memories about river trips that you have done in the past.
Watch this film with a fellow river runner. If you are younger, then watch it and find out why so many older rafters are such avid promoters of this sport! And try to do a Grand Canyon Colorado trip at least once in your lifetime...
