CONGO - The Grand Inga Project


CONGO - The Grand Inga Project

Presented by DC Adventure Films and Active Nature, Fish Munga’s CONGO – The Grand Inga Project, will make an appearance in the nation’s whitewater capital, Washington, D.C.! Steve Fisher, expedition leader and the director of the film will be on hand to introduce the film and talk about the expedition.

Recently awarded “BEST FILM” at the X-Dance Film Festival in Salt Lake City — the world’s premiere action sports film festival. CONGO – The Grand Inga Project is an 80 minute film that follows Steve Fisher, Tyler Bradt, Ben Marr, and Rush Sturges through the 50 mile stretch of the Congo River known as the Inga Rapids. Flowing at 1.6 million cubic feet per second, these rapids have resisted navigation since the first attempt by Henry Mortan-Stanley in 1874. Congo explores the previous attempts at navigating the massive whirlpools and waves of Inga, while also documenting the team’s training, preparation and the historic first successful descent. “This is a river like no other, and these rapids were a big step more difficult than we'd anticipated,” says Fisher, “We may have survived these rapids, but somehow we feel more humbled than proud.”

While the story doesn’t end there, the scale of the expedition, and the river itself, are best shared visually as Fisher and his team of the world’s best kayakers overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles during their historic quest. Helicopter footage, candid commentary, and some stellar paddling round out the story, creating an action packed documentary that remembers its roots. With overwhelmingly positive reviews from all over the country, CONGO is sure to be a hit with both paddlers and non-paddlers alike!

D.C. is home to the Great Falls of the Potomac River, a cascading gem of the whitewater world. Its proximity to the nation’s capital and incredible gradient, make it one of Fisher’s favorite places to paddle in the nation, “Great Falls has some of the best paddling in the country especially this time of year”. D.C. has been a vibrant kayaking community for decades and home to many world renowned Olympic athletes and thousands of beginners to experts in multiple disciplines (freestyle, river runners, etc). For this reason, DC Adventure Films and Active Nature along with Steve Fisher share this exciting film to the D.C. Metro paddling community. Fisher say’s “I have some good paddling friends there, and I'd love the paddling scene to see the films.”
