Chasing Niagara, a new feature-length kayaking film by Red Bull Media House and River Roots, follows Ortiz on a three-year journey to plan, prepare and train to run Niagara Falls. To prepare for this mission, Rafa Ortiz 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.
