Free movie at the Byrd kicks off Riverrock

May 15, 2013 5:46pm

image002Red Bull will be showing a screening of the flick, Congo: The Grand Inga Project, at Richmond’s historic Byrd Theater on Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m. This movie screening kicks off an action packed weekend of Dominion Riverrock festivities. The screening is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Steve Fisher, iconic kayaker and director of the film gives a glimpse of his journey to tackle the Inga Rapids with his brave team of paddlers. This deadly stretch of whitewater covers 50 miles in the heart of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The crew has quite a journey through the massive whirlpools and waves. The documentary shows the team exploring past attempts to conquer the Congo as they train and prepare for their first successful mission.


About the Congo: The Grand Inga Project 

The Grand Inga Project follows four of the world’s most successful and fearless paddlers; Tyler Bradt, Steve Fisher, Ben Marr and Rush Sturges, as they attempt the first descent in kayaks through the world’s biggest rapids on the Congo River.

Dominion Riverrock is open to the public and is free to all spectators. For event registration and further information about Dominion Riverrock 2013, please visit .
