When & Where
Inga: They are the world’s biggest rapids, 1.6 million cubic feet of water per second, thundering down the final pitch of the mighty Congo River. Explorers have tried to conquer these rapids for generations, but none have succeeded. The documentary follows kayaking icon Steve Fisher and his team as they struggle to navigate complicated logistical challenges, and then the historic first descent of a 50-mile section of the Congo River. No effort is spared in telling the story of what really happens when you decide to take on the deadliest rapids on earth. “This is a river like no other,” recalls Fisher, “We may have survived, but somehow we feel more humbled than proud.”
