The Good Life: Up the Yukon without a Paddle by Dorian Amos
5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 25 July 2013

And some philosophical musings that don't belittle anyone but make it clear that life is for living - however you want to do it.

This is short, but a wonderfully creative film. Highly recommended for anyone with an imagination. And if you love stop motion animation you HAVE to see this!
