Chasing Niagara - Launch About Chasing Niagara: The Red Bull Media House production in association with River Roots features Red Bull athlete Rafa Ortiz. After a very successful World Premiere at San Sebastian Int. Film Festival and several other festivals happening this fall, "Chasing Niagara" has won Best Film in the category Mountain Sports at the prestigious Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz makes the decision to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion an incredible series of events that eventually takes on a life of its own. To prepare for this mission, Rafa enlists the help of world-renowned paddler Rush Sturges and a tight team of their friends. Together they go on a remarkable three-year journey from the rainforest rivers of Mexico to the towering waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest. Their journey concludes in Canada where the team plays a cat-and-mouse game with local police before Rafa’s mission comes to a heart-stopping climax at the iconic Falls. Tony followed and worked with Rafa Ortiz in Mexico and Canada during the making of the film, Chasing Niagara. Visit www.chasingniagara.com to download the film.
