TU releases “Not Mine, Ours” movie on the Smith River

Trout Unlimited’s film “Not Mine, Ours” recently premiered at the 16th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival to a captive audience including children, which also happen to be the stars of production.

Film maker, Trout Unlimited staffer, and dad Josh Duplechian made the film while on a spring-time Smith River float with Clara (5), Clare (5), Lucy Gray (7), Luke (7) and Gordon (7).

“Kids ask a lot of questions. I knew when making this film we needed children to lead the discussion about the Smith River,” Duplechian said. “Not only did the kids exceed our expectations, but they managed to have thoughtful conversations about what this river meant to them for five days straight. Each and every one of these kids should be proud of their natural curiosity and what it will do to help save our Smith River.”
