Congo: The Grand Inga Project
Bring together some of the best kayakers in the world. Follow their journey conquering some of the hardest white water in the world. Here you have Congo: The Grand Inga Project, one of the most impressive paddling films in the world.
Directed by kayaking legend Steve Fisher. The film is an entertaining documentation of the participants training, travel, problems and successes on the expedition to paddle the previously un-navigable Inga Rapids. I recommend this film to anyone due to its fantastic story and incredible visuals throughout. The crew has done a great job filming the paddlers from afar and not just relying on the POV cameras strapped to the paddlers and their boats, which many films are now doing too much of. All shot in HD this makes for some great slow-motion sequences that even my fellow climbing friend admitted make him want to try the sport. Much of the film is narrated by the paddlers with some low-level appropriate soundtrack. The interviews during the film have lead to some great quotes.
