Eventbrite - 'Chasing Niagara' presented by Frozen River Film Festival

When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz decides to follow his dream to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion an incredible series of events that eventually takes on a life of its own. To prepare for this mission, Rafa enlists the help of world-renowned paddler and filmmaker Rush Sturges and a tight team of their friends. Together they go on a remarkable three-year journey from the rainforest rivers of Mexico to the towering waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest.

“I wanted to make a film that was a big story,” Sturges said. “That was my goal from the beginning, but it certainly didn’t turn out like the story I set out to create, especially since I had a hero ending in mind.”

The Frozen River Film Festival takes place February 15 – 19, 2017 in Winona, Minn., and offers documentary films and programming that engage, educate and activate our community to become involved in the world.
