Director Jon Cohrs set out on an unusual journey. What if Lewis & Clark were around today and they explored the Hackensack river? This intriguing documentary takes us on that trip to get an unusual vantage point on both this post-industrial waterway and the post 911 reality in America. Deftly edited “Back Water” takes us along for the ride to explore with the mixed crew of 8. The cook, the trapper, the sound man along with the director and others share the experience .
Chad Smith of Remote Access Post covered the color grading duties on this remarkable doc. Visuals are accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack by Rob Burger, Mark Orton and Tara Jane O’Neil. Look for it coming to a film festival near you.
