Slovenian endurance swimmer Martin Strel was 52, overweight, and drinking too much booze when he decided to tackle the most challenging swim of his life - all 3,375 miles of the Amazon River. Filmmaker John Maringouin follows him up the river for 66 gruelling days, along with Strel's rowdy and bizarre entourage who cheer him on from the bank. A fascinating portrait of a true eccentric, it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and took out the Best Cinematography gong in the World Cinema-Documentary category. A shining example of guts (and a little bit of insanity) triumphing over the odds.
