LABRADOR PASSAGE is a documentary film project co-produced by Twin Cites Public Television that follows two men who will set out in June, 2014, to retrace Mina Hubbard's historic 1905 canoe journey through Labrador. The unique aspect of the trip is that the crew will only use non-synthetic equipment. We're talking the classics here: waxed canvas tent, tin-cloth rain gear, and a cedar canvas canoe. Much of this equipment that will be used will be handmade by local craftspeople. On this website, you can acquaint yourself with the history of the expedition, as well as the process of putting the outfit together.

The site will also be periodically updated with short videos produced in order to give visitors a sense of both the history of the route and the motive for paddling it with non-synthetic, largely handmade equipment. Watch the two previews below.
