SYNOPSIS

Wild Waters follows Nouria Newman as she prepares to become the first female to run a 100ft waterfall. She is one of the greatest kayakers of all times - male or female. Running some of the world’s hardest whitewater isn’t Nouria’s biggest life challenge, however, as she has to overcome expectations placed on her as an athlete and as a woman on her lifelong path to greatness. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer]

Nouria is a former medalist in canoeing, freestyle, and expedition kayaking, taking on a challenge that few can do: kayaking over Ecuador's 30-meter Pucano Falls. The film portrays her nature as a human and how she, an athlete, constantly pushes her limits.
