Mountain Mind Collective – AKA Brothers Todd Wells and Brendan Wells of Trout Lake, Wa- has come up with an amazing collection of kayaking footage from around the globe and put into an awesome film “For The Love“.
Great title considering its a sport so closely held to the hearts of whom ever has fallen for the addictive fun and beauty a river has to offer.
From Mountain Mind Collectives site :
“For the Love is an approximately one hour film, telling the story of two brothers who grew up in a small town with a huge love for rivers and whitewater kayaking. Their quest begins at home in the pacific northwest, where they learned how to paddle, met their tight-knit community of kayakers, and began to push themselves and the sport of kayaking. The film also documents their travels around the world to magical destinations like Iceland, where they highlight some of the most creative and innovative athletes in the sport.
At the core of the Wells brother’s passion as paddlers is their love for exploring never-before-paddled rivers. The film follows the brothers and friends on their journeys to explore these uncharted rivers from Alaska to Ecuador. The brothers and their team met both failures and success on these missions to explore the unknown, getting rained out and stuck in the middle of the jungle to discovering a new classic Alaskan big-water river.
The film concludes with a creative story of the brother’s goal to show the world of kayaking in a whole new light. The film is told through the voices of Brendan and Todd, and the many friends who joined them along the way.”
The World Premiere of “For The Love” is coming to the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, OR on April 19th, 2016. Mountain Mind Collective is delighted to share their first feature-length whitewater kayaking documentary with residents of and visitors to the Columbia River Gorge.
