British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall, depend on each other for survival, as they canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada. The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together, irrespective of age.
Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and the relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children are fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, and opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, embrace the unknown, and strike out on their own adventures.
This started as a passion project and ultimately became a full feature film produced by Fieldgrazer Productions with original music from Dan Benny. The film toured cinemas in the UK supported by Travel Yukon and we were delighted to receive awards from a number of film festivals. Distributed by Tull Stories the film is now available to enjoy on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The film leaves the audience wanting to call their loved ones, dream big, and dare to believe.”
