The Passage

In 1974, film-maker Nate Dappen’s 20-year-old parents and Uncle Andy built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. Nate and his brother grew up paddling those wooden canoes in the Virginia rivers and the 1974 adventure became legend in the Dappen family – shaping each member, forging their identities and influencing how they viewed each other.

In the summer of 2017, Nate and his brother renovated those same canoes and with their aging parents re-traced  their legendary 1974 journey.

The Passage is a story about growing up, growing old, and the wild places that define us.
