Check out this inspiring paddling film from Sean Mullens. Birthright is black and white, mostly lacking in narration, and filmed with a digital SLR, like Canon’s 5D. It gives the film a soft focus that sets the right mood for the story of quadriplegic paddler Michael Mitchell’s surf session. Thanks to Canoe & Kayak and the Epicocity Project for bringing it to our attention.
