Scenes from the Green By Celin Serbo ¬ Synopsis
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the first person to walk up to a wall with no established climbing routes anywhere in site?
That sense of curiosity and a desire for solitude and adventure are what spurred myself and other three like-minded friends to take a chance and float a forty-five mile road-less stretch of the Green River in southeastern Utah to see what we could find. Inspired by the desert climbing pioneers that came before us and eager to make our own small contributions to our sport, we quickly realized that the experience would have lasting impressions that went well beyond the climbing.
Shot over the course of 6 days by a crew of one in early May of 2016 with the Red Scarlet W, a shotgun mic, and a tripod, this short film aims to highlight the experience we encountered.
