A short film focusing on the cooperation that is fundamental to whitewater kayaking

From filmmaker Jakub Pinos, who shot this beautiful film while paddling in British Columbia: "Is kayaking simply an individual sport? What role do other people play in progression of an individual paddler? This film focuses on an important aspect of whitewater kayaking: cooperation. Experienced paddlers know that cooperation is a crucial part of the sport, but often an emphasis on individual progression seems to hide that fact. Moreover, films on whitewater don't usually focus on the importance of group dynamics. This film is an author’s attempt to offer a more realistic representation of what kayaking means to him."
