Official Trailer:

Old Man River Project is a 10 chapter web-series.

This true story is about a 110-day expedition rowing the entire Mississippi River: Brett, Cliff, Magnus, Sarah and Kyle. The team built a historic boat by hand and rowed 2400 miles through the heart of America. Along the way they faced fierce storms, inner struggles, portaging their thousand pound boat around 10 dams, and coming face to face with some of the most intense industrial development on the planet.

A story by Brett Rogers. Filmed by Doug Copping. Edited by Max Attwood.
