Gorging (Colorado Premiere)
(90 minutes; 2013) Brian Olliver
Gorging is a feature documentary about the sport of canyoneering, its pioneers and participants.Gorging is the portrait of canyoneering. Told from four very different perspectives - a guidebook author, photographer, guru and weekend warrior - each offers a unique take on the emerging sport. Exploring the remote canyons of the American Southwest, Gorging examines the discovery, growth, accidents, environmental impact and future of canyoneering. As the extreme sport of canyoneering grows and the mainstream takes it on, what will be the future of a historically 'secret' sport?

Last of the Great Unknown
(22:53 minutes; 2012) Dan Ransom
The Grand Canyon is an immense place, almost unfathomable in scale, and one of the last places in the American West to be explored. Deep within this vast wilderness are secret and intimate tributaries rarely visited by man, hiding some of the Canyon's most remarkable features. The barrier to entry is steep. To explore them, one must have knowledge of backpacking, pack rafting, rappelling, anchor building and off-trail navigation. “The Last of the Great Unknown” is the story of these slots, the canyoneers who systematically explored their drainages, and the secrets hidden deep within their walls.
