The Sundance Award winning film BIG RIVER MAN is being released in cinemas on Friday 4th September, but you can see the film before everyone else at one of the three special preview screenings.

Over weight and over 50 years old, Martin Strel breaks the Guinness Book of Records with what can only be described as the longest, most dangerous swim in history. Strel battles through gangs, unexposed tribes, crocodiles, toxic waste, lethal whirlpools and deadly piranhas during his historic 3,375 mile swim through the Amazon - drinking no less than two bottles of wine whilst still swimming.

Director John Maringouin captures the many dimensions of Strel’s journey from his strained working relationship with his son to his ultimate aspiration of contributing to a cleaner, greener world.

Environmental campaigner, world-class athlete, compulsive drinker and adventurer, Martin Strel makes Big River Man a journey not to be missed.

Taking place in London and Cambridge, the screenings will be followed by a Q&A session with Martin Strel, the star of the film.
