The Story of Chicken Raper

A new 7-minute short and multimedia presentation by Steamboat filmmaker Cody Perry of Rig to Flip
The story of the Dolores River's most notorious rapid. Set in the 1970s and mixed between a pioneering young river guide, a wild and scenic study trip, a harrowing whitewater rescue, a river romance and the fragility of precious life. This is a story of boating heritage on the Dolores River. One that you'll never forget.

Inside the Indus: A Pakistani Odyssey

A 27-minute short feature by Ciarán Heurteau, a film from France featured at Mountainfilm 2018
After years of plotting, New Zealand Olympian Mike Dawson sets out to run the Rondu Gorge section of the Indus with Spanish kayak champion Aniol Serrasolses and Irish filmmaker Ciarán Heurteau. The trio navigates riffles and rapids, and exchange high-fives with local villagers. But rockslides block their support team, the gorge becomes steeper, the portages longer and Dawson has a brush with death as he is sucked into a hole. Inside the Indus chronicles an epic eight-day mission down a section of one of Asia’s longest and most unforgiving rivers.
