Troubled Water chronicles a 36-day, 425-mile journey on standup paddleboards along the Great Lakes. The film is directed by Davis Huber and produced by William Wright and Chris Yahanda.

The idea was sparked by the three friends on their summer paddle trip down Michigan’s west coast. Chris received a text alert that a judge had temporarily shut down Line 5 after Canadian oil company Enbridge failed to abide by the State’s shutdown order. As the sun set over Lake Michigan, these lifelong friends couldn’t help but wonder, “How can any Michigander stomach the risk of an oil spill on this coastline?”

Inspired to do something, they created a film to shed light on the manmade impacts of Michigan's freshwater, including the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline, which carries nearly 23 million gallons of crude oil and natural gas liquids daily beneath the Straits of Mackinac.
