Using the city's famous river as a location, filmmaker D.P. CARLSON places filmmakers in a variety of boats and interviews them as they explore the river and share stories of how Chicago has influenced their careers.
The Chicago River comes to life as the artists float along the famous waterway, which is often photographed in films, but rarely featured as a continuous backdrop.
