Into The Canyon – Postponed

In response to COVID-19 event guidance from public officials, the Whitewater Film Series showing of Into the Canyon on Friday April 17th has been postponed. The film will be rescheduled and added to the Fall Whitewater Film Series.

INTO THE CANYON tells the story of two friends, photographer Pete McBride and writer Kevin Fedarko, on a surprising, exhausting, and often hilarious 750-mile journey, by foot, through the sublime beauty of the Grand Canyon’s entire length. Their trail-less, bushwhacking journey takes us to rarely seen locations and also the front-lines of the fight to save this iconic landscape from being exploited by commercial development and “loved to death”.

Documented with jaw-dropping cinematography, INTO THE CANYON offers a warning about the environmental dangers that are placing one of America’s greatest monuments in peril, and a cautionary tale about our complex relationship with our natural world, tourism, and native lands.

While not condoned by the USNWC, guests should be advised that this film may feature strong language and adult themes which may not be appropriate for younger children.
