About the Film

Picture a land of rolling hills, crystalline lakes, secluded ponds, verdant forest, and a mighty river that flows through its heart. Add some fascinating history and equally fascinating people and you have “Seeking the Source,” the first hour-long film from Explore New England.

Join host and outdoor writer Tom Richardson as he explores New Hampshire’s Great North Woods through a variety of outdoor activities, including camping, hiking, fishing, paddling, ATV riding, snowmobiling, boating, hunting and more. Along the way, you’ll learn about the region through the eyes of local residents who call this place home—and are willing to share some of their secrets.

Stunning cinematography by acclaimed filmmaker AJ Derosa captures the changing scenery and local wildlife as the film moves through the seasons, yet always returns to the great river that has shaped so much of the region’s unique history and culture.
