Steve Langston, Chris Mitchell, Ryan Mitchell and Gui Borgstrom bike along a Manitoba road. The crew made a documentary where they biked throughout the province, eating only locally grown food.

Three filmmakers, orignally from Brandon, will have their documentary, "Tailwind: Prairie Harvest," air tonight on CBC at 7 p.m.

The hour-long film follows the crew of Steve Langston, Chris Mitchell, Ryan Mitchell and Gui Borgstrom as they navigate Manitoba by bike, eating only locally grown food.

"We’re really excited and it’s a big step forward for us," Chris Mitchell said.

It took the crew 17 days to bike approximately 1,300 kilometres following "Manitoba by Bicycle," a guidebook that Langston wrote in 2008.

"We met a lot of really cool food producers in the province," Mitchell said.

"There is an abundance of local food and going through the Whiteshell area was really neat. We also hit up a lot of lakes and provincial parks."

The documentary, along with the group’s previous film "Riding North," will be playing at the Riding Mountain National Park Film Festival, which begins Tuesday.

Mitchell said they recently finished their third documentary, which focuses on Dauphin’s Countryfest.
