synopsis
On the French Broad River follows the journey of the Torgerson family as they raft 147 miles from Rosman, North Carolina, through class III and IV whitewater rapids, all the way to Douglass Lake in Tennessee. With environmental themes related to water quality and best management practices within watersheds, this film is about the river, the people who use it, and the social and political issues that surround it. Utilizing interviews with those within the fields of biology, wildlife conservation, and geology, this is an educational and heartwarming film for the whole family.

director
Bill Torgerson divides his time between New York City where he teaches writing courses at St. John's University and Asheville, North Carolina where he lives with his wife Megan and two daughters. Torgerson's screenplay adaptation of his novel Love on the Big Screen won the Grand Prize of the Rhode Island International Film Festival Screenplay Competition. His award winning documentaries include For the Love of Books, The Mushroom Hunter, and Yes You May: The Story of Christopher's Garden. He is the author of three books of fiction, and writer Pat Conroy called Torgerson's latest novel, The Coach's Wife, "One of the best books about basketball and coaching I've ever read with a love story so complicated books clubs will be talking about it for years." Torgerson publishes a Torg Stories podcast to iTunes and posts updates about his work at TheTorg.com.
