About "The River is Life" Tour

Movie Description: In the summer of 2009, filmmakers Phillip Hullquist and Ryan Jeanes embarked on a twothousand-three-hundred-mile journey down the entire length of the Mississippi River.

Armed with a high-definition video camera, two paddles, two inflatable kayaks and their wits (or lack thereof), the pair aimed to be the first to document a real-life epic journey down America's greatest and best-known waterway. An American tale, a family tale, a story of danger, friendship and redemption everyone can enjoy, "The River is Life" will tug on your heartstrings and sound the call to adventure. So grab an oar and meet an incredible cast of characters, face danger with 4-foot boat wakes, vast Minnesota lakes and monstrous barges, meet the people of the river as you stay in their homes and live their hospitality... and quirkiness. Journey North to South on the legendary Mississippi River and live an adventure you will never forget. "The River is Life" tour and DVD is produced by Mississippi River Movie Productions, LLC."The River is Life" is distributed by 11 Visions, LLC.

Event Description: In the summer of 2010, Phillip and Ryan will take their second trip down the Mississippi River: a 45-city movie tour where they will showcase their adventure documentary IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS! in public parks and recreation areas, north and south, all along the Great River.

Bring a chair/and or blanket and relax under the stars.
