Canoandes is a feature length documentary set in 1979 Soviet Era Poland. The film tells the story of five university students on the edge of adulthood who skillfully pull the strings of the Soviet system and find themselves in the Americas with a six-wheeled military truck, homemade kayaks, and little to no whitewater skills. The story follows their epic two-year journey that culminates with the record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest canyon and a life-threatening dash for political asylum in the United States, all while telling the story of Poland’s Solidarity movement and the rise of democracy in the Eastern Bloc.
The project is currently in production.
This is a rough teaser.
