Two mates go out to the Amazon, fell a massive tree, make a dugout canoe and set off downstream. In this age of obfuscating politicians and alternate facts, it’s great to have a film title that leaves little to the imagination! Ben Sadd and James Trundle have been coming to the ATFF for years, either as film-makers (2014’s masterful Trail to Anywhere as well as DugOut, which we first screened in 2017), winners of the camp-fire cooking competition or simply as master spoon whittlers! These guys are what this festival lives and breathes; free spirits with a true thirst for adventure; original, inventive and creative in equal measure. Compliments? You bet. Ben and James are the future: kind, interested, grass roots and genuinely funny. They should have their own series on BBC2 and when they do, we shall raise a glass and toast them!
