British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall, depend on each other for survival, as they canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada. The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together, irrespective of age.
Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children is fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.
"The film leaves the audience wanting to call their loved ones, dream big, and dare to believe."
"The feature-length documentary is a gentle, unpretentious love-letter to untamed nature and its ability to bring two people together." *** The Arts Desk
The film is suitable for families and specifically made to inspire curious adventurers of all ages!
