 The Story 

This is a coming of age documentary following teenage girls as they embark on a strenuous and life changing canoe trip into the Canadian wilderness. 

It’s a film about a group of young women who gather together at the start of summer on a small island in Canada. Unlike other coming of age stories, this is less about romantic rejection and whimsical chats in messy bedroom and more about...whimsical chats on canoes and in tents, whilst camping out under stars. In this story we’ll see what it is for young women to step away from their digitally dependent teenage lives and fall in love with their own strength and resilience, the sisterhood that grows from their endurance and shared experience.

This story features 10 everyday American teenage girls from Los Angeles to New York, and many places in between.  We’ll follow the physical journey, as they paddle wood-canvas canoes using traditional tripping methods (*see below, “What is traditional tripping?”), for 7-weeks through the northern wilderness of Quebec. Traveling a network of streams, lakes, rivers, mud-holes and muskeg bogs - and ultimately following the route of the Eastmain River - they are unlikely to encounter anyone other than bears, moose, and swarms of mosquito and biting black fly. They’ll be completely self-sufficient, everything they need carried in 6 canoes until their one and only resupply via float plane after 23 days.  

The journey will be wild and the location stunning but it’s the trials these young women face as they undergo this strenuous, self-supported canoe trip that is of real interest.

In a world where we are pulled more and more into the screens of our phones, our T.V.s, our laptops, and into the hectic day-to-day activity that surrounds us, this documentary will showcase what happens when young women prioritize nature and being in the moment. It will show us what can happen when we dive into the wilderness with arms wide open. 


 A few more words about the trip...         

The girls will be completely self-sufficient and face all the risks and rewards that go with this style of tripping. They’ll be forced to dig deep at times. Lost canoes, wildfires and bear encounters are all scenarios that have been faced in the past.  This is not a contrived trip - it requires serious grit and determination. 

Not only will the girls be lacking in luxuries but there will be seemingly endless wind and rain. Long knackering days which feel like they’ll never end...always hauling, always tumping, constantly lumbering and lumping. Lifting heavy wooden boxes along portages, over deadfall, and lining canoes over shallow rocky rapids. There will be wet feet for days on end, bites from loathsome black fly, clouds of mosquitoes, and muskeg bog ready to swallow them whole. 

A technical rocky portage

There may even be tears.  But through it all there’ll be laughter and humor born from discomfort and a shared recognition of their absurd situation. They could be at the cinema, having fun and eating popcorn...but they’re not. They chose this - this wonderful, infuriating, all consuming wilderness. 


 The Film 

Life on trip will (undoubtedly) be a rollercoaster mix of highs and lows. Filmmaker Hannah Maia will be traveling alongside the girls for periods throughout the 7 weeks to capture it all on camera.  The film crew will be small - very small - just Hannah and an assistant paddle partner, so we can expect an ‘up close’ and raw insight into their adventure. 

As director of Beyond the Bay, Hannah is interested in what can be learnt from a long wilderness trip like this. What does it mean to be part of a community of fun, capable wild women at such a formative age? How do we confront the reality of feeling small in big remote places? And what can really be gained from experiences that are slow, purposeful, strenuous and exhausting?

The story will be told using a combination of trip footage from both Hannah and self-shot footage from the girls themselves. We will include moments from normal teenage life captured on phones, alongside in-depth formal interviews with the girls. We’ll also incorporate interviews with adults who have themselves completed a similar 50-day canoe trip as teenagers.

There’ll be plenty of visual references to the culture and the time in which we find ourselves. This is a coming-of-age story, so music is really important, just as it is to lots of teenagers. It’s our aim to score music specifically for this production as well as featuring songs you may recognize. We want to take you back to your own adolescence and have you singing along in your armchair.

 A Few words from Hannah 

Above all else, I get excited when I hear stories about average women doing extraordinary things and I really believe in the exceptional experience these teenage girls will have this summer. I know we can all share in what they gain.         

I believe that the stories we tell reflect who we are and the world we want to live in, so as a filmmaker, I want to tell a positive story and one which shines a light on the alternative options open to young women today. My filmmaking is honest, upfront and authentic with a hint of humor; so it’s in this style that I’ll consider how the things which don’t come easy, or are perhaps strenuous and exhausting, are often the most rewarding. I’m also excited to discover more about the the deep tradition of canoe tripping and how the values of a hundred plus years can stay relevant and beneficial to teenage girls of today. 

Join with me to celebrate these girls who have chosen to take time out from technology and the constant stream of social media. And through our telling of their story, let’s encourage other girls to feel proud to use their bodies for strength, and to develop a connection with nature.  


 What’s up with the “K” on the green canoes?

A backstory to be woven into the film is the idea that this is a summer camp but not as most people know it. The camp is called Keewaydin and was founded 126 years ago (it’s the oldest operating summer camp in north America established in 1893); it's only in the last 20 years that girls have been included in their tripping. The camp operates with the same vision as when it was established, which is to offer “a program focused on wilderness canoe tripping, with minimum time spent in base camp”. It's an organization imbued with history, the influences of which can be seen directly today in the way they travel. Leather tump lines are used to portage canoes, and heavy wooden wannigan boxes carry food and equipment. They continue to follow records of routes that are centuries old.

What is traditional tripping?*

  • Wood-canvas canoes (beautiful and heavy, weighing up to 100lbs -45kg - when wet)
  • Wood “wannigan” boxes to carry kitchen gear and food 
  • Leather “tump lines” to tie up loads for portaging gear from one's head
  • Cloth duffels carrying personal gear
  • Fire irons, for open-fire cooking
  • Aluminum reflector oven for baking
  • Very few dehydrated foods and never any pre-made meals 
  • Wool. Remember that dinosaur predating polar-fleece? Nothing stays warm when wet like wool!

What’s happened so far...

We’ve already put Hannah on a 9-day canoe trip (summer 2018), where she was inducted into traditional tripping methods, and captured footage and interviews. Hannah also shot  pre-trip footage and interviews in February this year including a visit to see Alex, a 16 year old at her home in Manhattan, in anticipation of the adventure ahead; and a trip to Salmon Falls Canoe where she witnessed steaming cedar planks being crafted into beautiful wood canvas canoes.

 The Budget 

Now we need your help to cover the expenses of filming the girls on-trip this summer. There are transcontinental plane trips getting Hannah to and from the U.K.; multi-day drives to small airfields, and bush plane flights for entries and exits as Hannah meets up with the girls in Quebec throughout the summer. The logistics for Hannah are intense - this is remote wilderness! -  but imagine, too, her equipment, her personal kit, and a heavy wood-canvas canoe. We have wages to pay our amazing paddle-partner, and some additional travel costs for her  - a strong, young woman well-versed in tripping who can, quite frankly, do all the heavy lifting required, so Hannah can be filming.  

Filming in remote Quebec will require some special equipment, which needs purchased - plenty of pelican cases, solar-chargers, and back-up hard-drive systems so we have copies of the copies of the footage - water tends to find its way where you don't want it! There are also trip insurance and Kickstarter fees...whew!

If - WHEN! - we reach our fundraising goal, keep your pledges coming. All pledges above and beyond our goal will go towards post-production costs: come Fall we will be entering the crafting stage of the film itself. Additional dollars will help increase our range of choices, from licensing rights for songs, motion graphics, and other tools Hannah needs to tell this exceptional story! 

If you or anyone you know is interested in supporting Beyond the Bay as a charitable donation, tax-deductible gifts can be made to the project directly through our partnering 501c-3.
