Video: "All the Way Home" Trailer

June 22, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

Last year filmmaker and journalist Edward Nachtrieb took the season off from his job as a Travel Channel director to film wounded veterans floating and fishing Montana’s Smith River. The Smith floats, organized by outfitter Mike Geary, are captured in Nachtrieb’s new flim “All the Way Home.” “Three years ago, Montana fishing outfitter Mike Geary was inspired by news reports to organize fly fishing trips for disabled veterans down one of the American West’s most isolated rivers. In this film, we meet a group of veterans that reflects the diversity of challenges facing our returning soldiers. Some, on leave from Walter Reed Hospital, bear the obvious physical wounds of war while others cope with hidden traumas that are invisible, yet dangerous.”
