Audiences can expect to see these great films: Rock the Boat—Saving America’s Wildest River where a local boater insists on seeing the L.A. River as a river again causing a local controversy that takes on national proportions; Two friends on a quest to travel the ultimate river by any means possible in Go Ganges! find epic adventure on the holy and polluted Ganges; That First Glide is a documentary that traces standup paddling’s deep roots in early Polynesian and Hawaiian history and how it is rapidly expanding today; and Huck as it explores what it means to kayak off big waterfalls, considering both the risk and rewards of a life driven by freefall.
