Waterwalker by Bill Mason takes us on a canoe odyssey to one of his favourite places, the north shore of Lake Superior and many of the rivers that run to it. His love and concern for the land is reflected in his cinematography, as well as his on site sketching and painting. Bill considered this his masterpiece as the subject matter was so important to him. The result is a personal story set to paddling and portaging through spectacular images on land, water and seeing animals that most of us would be considered lucky to ever experience first hand. Coupled with Bruce Coburn composed music it's a wonderful production to enjoy.
Running time: 87 minutes.
