Through The Breaks

Jason Cajune lives in Livingston, MT where he designs and builds wooden drift boats alongside his family. Last summer, Jason packed up one of his custom boats and led his family on a float trip down the Missouri River, through the American Prairie Reserve. Their trip serves as a journey through family traditions, a protected landscape and layers of history over time.

"Tom Attwater captures every incentive for conservation there is and presents them exquisitely and unhurriedly - climb aboard, relax and float through the prairie" - London Mountain Film Festival Judges Review.
