Fish Munga – We’re pleased to announce our partnership with Rush Surges in delivering his most recent kayak film ‘Frontier’ – available on DVD. This joins a narrow selection of only the finest action sports films, that we offer.
As a finalist in Banff 2011 and winner of the 2012 X-Dance Adventure Film of the Year, ‘Frontier’ highlights a crew of top kayakers traveling to new rivers in search of un-run waterfalls in all corners of the globe, putting a strong emphasis on exploration, the progression of the sport and highlighting some of the hardest whitewater ever paddled. Among other epic scenes, it features Rafa Ortiz and Aniol Serrasoles’s 128.6FT waterfall descent of Big Banana Falls, in Veracruz Mexico.
When asked about the latest additions to the product lineup available at fishmunga.com, filmmaker Steve Fisher had the following to say: “We’re not trying to become the next big DVD distributor, that’s not what we do, but we do want to help our friends and promote films that we like and respect. I’m a big believer in the idea that less is more, so this is where you’ll find only the very best films in their genre. We even have half a dozen of our own films that aren’t available here, simply because they aren’t up to par. We need people to trust our recommendations in the future and the only way we can do that is if we’re very selective in what we offer.”
Not only is Rush Sturges a main character in Fish Munga’s ‘Congo’ and ‘Halo Effect’, his collaboration with comes from deep within his own production company – ‘River Roots’. He’s won his own awards and helped us win ours, and he’s one of the world’s best all-round kayakers. We’ve been on many expeditions together, and been impressed by his calculated and balanced approach. But his skills don’t end at filmmaking or kayaking; as another musician in the ranks, he’s won multiple ‘Best Original Score’ awards… with his own music!
