Docurama: Big River Man
Thursday, March 25, 2010
Directed and shot by John Maringouin, Big River Man won a best cinematographer award at Sundance 2009.
In February 2007 Martin Strel began an insane attempt to be the first person to swim the entire length of the world's most dangerous river, the mighty Amazon. Martin is an endurance swimmer from Slovenia, who swims rivers - the Mississippi, the Danube and the Yangtze to date - to highlight their pollution to the world. Martin is also a rather overweight, horseburger loving Slovenian in his fifties who drinks two bottles of red wine a day... even when swimming.
Docurama is a documentary series co-sponsored by the McLaughlin Library and your Central Student Association. Most titles screened are from the McLaughlin Library Media Collection.
