Join us for this inspiring multi-award winning documentary. In search of a new perspective, a family of five leave the comforts of home to live remotely in the Yukon wilderness during the long northern winter and amidst the surprises that the rawness of nature provide. The parents leave their jobs and take their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to spend nine months living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, and no internet, no TV, no phone and, most importantly, no clocks or watches.

Filmed over 9 months, off the grid, without external crew, and featuring the unique perspectives of children, All The Time In The World explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology-laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment – parents connecting with children, children connecting with nature.

Won Best of Festival at the 2015 Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

The film will end about 8:30 pm. Stay after the film for news about the American River Canyon and updates about the proposed Parker Dam on the Bear River, the Clem Hydro Project, the newly published Auburn State Recreation Area Trails and River map, and more.

You can now view, or download and print, the brochure "Codfish Creek Falls Discovery Trail." This brochure, beautifully illustrated by Colfax high school senior Heather Mehl under the guidance of Eric Peach and California State Parks & Recreation, highlights some of the plants, trees, and birds that can be seen along this lovely trail which meanders along the North Fork of the American River.
