After 5 incredible years in the making and sharing, the Nobody’s River project has come to a close. It was a life changing opportunity and journey–from building the project and the expedition itself to film festivals, screenings, speaking engagements and written accounts spread all around the world. It was only possible because of the generous support of incredible companies like NRS, Trak, National Geographic, and Polartec, and hundreds of individual donors. We appreciate each of you! Thank you for the opportunity to share stories about the incredible Amur River and the adventures and antics of our team of 4 wild women. We hope it added a little bit of inspiration to the fire for each of you to keep exploring, inside yourself and out in the world, to keep savoring your one precious life, and to keep loving and protecting this beautiful planet we all share together.
The journey planned is rarely the journey taken. The Nobody’s River expedition team had no idea how true this would be as they prepared to leave for a two month expedition in Mongolia and Russia. This film documents their journey along one of the few remaining free-flowing rivers of the world and through the complexities of love and loss. From their hilarious antics to deeply human struggles, these ladies shine a light on the soul of internal and external exploration. This inspiring story was crafted by award-winning freelance director and cinematographer Skip Armstrong. Though the film is generally not available for purchase or public screenings. Please feel free to contact us with any special inquiries.
Nobody’s River is a documentary expedition on one of the world’s greatest and least known free flowing rivers, the Amur. In the summer of 2013 a team of 4 women traveled and documented this last of it’s kind river from the remote Mongolian headwaters to a massive delta in Russia. Then shared their stories and lessons from a free flowing river with their communities and beyond through film, articles, and live talks. The project has come to a close, but the website is still here with resources and stories for our community. Feel free to take a look around. And enjoy!
