Blackwater Drifters is the culmination of a multi year documentary process. Nick Caiazza and Joe Zimmermann both quit their jobs and kayaked over 3800 miles on the Missouri-Mississippi river system, the longest waterway in North America, completely human powered. Through their journey, people along the river, and the words of leading water scientists, we explore how human activity effects our water, and indeed what it means to live in this highly connected world.
Spencer edited both the film and the trailer.
