The Last Descent- FRI b-side 7pm
The World's rivers are being dammed now faster than ever. In response to this, a group of whitewater paddlers set out on a one-year adventure to document what could be the last descents of Nepal's Marsyangdi River, Uganda's White Nile River and India's Brahmaputra River. These rivers are all in the process of being dammed or are threatened by large-scale hydroelectric projects. In addition to native people living sustainably in their environment and the most ecologically diverse areas in the world, these rivers are also home to gigantic whitewater. The adventure of travel and exploration, the story of native people fighting to survive and the exhilaration of whitewater kayaking are mingled together in this award-winning film.

Africa Revolutions Tour- Thurs B-theater 7pm
Join the Africa Revolutions Tour team as they set out on one of the most action-packed, ambitious kayaking adventures ever! Building on years of film-making and whitewater exploration, the Tour represents a new genre of action sports documentary that couples the adventure and excitement of extreme sport with cause-driven initiatives. The expedition provided the opportunity to educate the people encountered about their solar potential and the Sun Catchers Project, a non-profit that installs solar cooking facilities in African orphanages, hospitals and communities. From the crocodile-infested White Nile in Uganda to big water first descents throughout Madagascar and the highest documented descent of the Zambezi. Come join the adventure!
