“Call of the Canyon”

“Call of the Canyon”,

A 60-minute documentary production currently in television release. Was the Civil War hero, Major John Wesley Powell, the first person to navigate the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon or did a lone swimmer escaping an Indian attack precede his documented adventure? Impossible! “Ridiculous” – stated the “experts” – nobody could swim the Grand Canyon’s monster rapids and live! I disagree said filmmaker Art Vitarelli, former National Kayaking Champion, and 10-time paddler of the canyons rapids. Created and photographed by Art Vitarelli – postproduction by “Intermountain Network” and seen on national PBS. Marketing available contact Reel Orange.
