Over twenty hydroelectric dams have been proposed for the principle tributary of the Amazon River. The currently free-flowing Marañón River cuts through the Andes Mountains and helps sustain resident communities as well as the most diverse ecosystem on Earth. An international team of scientists and river experts investigated the natural, recreational and cultural resources that would be eminently impacted by the dams during a month-long raft trip on the Marañón.
The Time Travelers
The Time Travelers
In 2016, members of the U.S. Men’s Rafting team hatched an incredible challenge for themselves: to attempt to break the speed record for 277 miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon by rowing the entire stretch in only 34 hours. The Time Travelers follows their extraordinary mission, which entailed designing and building a 48-foot-long Millenial Falcon of rivercrafts, swapping out customary paddles for oars and training intensely for eight months until launch day in January 2017. What could have been a purely physical challenge turned into something much more: a lesson in camaraderie, perspective and the power of a wild river. In the hands of the team that made The Important Places (Mountainfilm 2015), it becomes an unforgettable story of adventure.
