Come warm up with us at Les Bourgeois Bistro to watch a river movie! Follow two friends on their journey by kayak down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

In 2015, Nick Caiazza and Joe Zimmerman paddled the entire Missouri/Mississippi River system from the source at Brower Spring near the continental divide in Montana to the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, they got a up close look at the many ways that humans use and effect these rivers.

This film follows both their personal adventures as well as their journey to understand the impacts that we are having on these iconic rivers in the heart of our country.
