en explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. MEN ON BOATS charts the mostly accurate and moderately true(ish) government sanctioned 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River…and oh, all of them are played by women. This rollicking history pageant both admires and satirizes the traditional male exploration narrative.
