This formidable documentary follows overweight, middle-aged, alcoholic Slovenian daredevil environmentalist Martin Strel on a journey down the Amazon. Facing crocodiles, toxic waste, whirlpools, giant anacondas and piranhas, Strel attempts to swim the length of the mighty river, a seemingly impossible challenge that John Maringouin (director of a coruscating 2006 documentary about his father, Running Stumbled) captures in vivid style.
Also screening as part of our Wild Docs season: Herzog's Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World.
To win one of three sets of Herzog DVDs (Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World) just email firstname.lastname@example.org and name one film Werner Herzog has made with Klaus Kinski.
Competition closes 24 September, winners will be notified by email.
