BENOFF: Wild Water & The Waterfall Hunters (Short Films)

July 12 @ 7:00 pm

Tickets THE WATERFALL HUNTERS

BOULDER BASED FILMMAKER LINDSEY HAGAN WILL JOIN US FOR A POST-FILM TALKBACK.
If you don’t know something exists, how do you give it a voice? Waterfall Hunters follows three Costa Ricans -Javier, Jimmy and Miguel- as they seek to find, document, and inspire others to preserve invaluable ecosystems and habitats in the Costa Rican jungle. A beautiful journey into rarely-seen territory, teeming with life but under imminent threat of destruction. The stakes couldn’t be higher, as the men abseil, climb and hike into the heart of the jungle.

Directed by Lindsey Hagen | Runtime: 24 mins

WILD WATER
Adventurer, competitor, daughter, friend, pioneer, hero, and badass human are all words used to describe French kayaker, Nouria Newman. In Wild Waters, we follow Nouria as she prepares to become the first female to run a 100ft (30m) waterfall; we watch her grow from a young, keen Olympic hopeful to one of the greatest kayakers of all time – male or female.

However, running some of the world’s hardest whitewater isn’t Nouria’s biggest life challenge. Realizing that the expectations placed upon her as both an athlete and as a woman weigh heavily on her decisions and ambitions, she pushes back to make her own path.

It is this central aspect of her life— this refusal to conform to others’ expectations— where Nouria is able to use kayaking as a way to transform into her truest self, and become a once-in-a-generation kayaker.

Directed by David Arnaud | Runtime: 86 mins
