The documentary film "Big River Man" follows Slovenian endurance swimmer Martin Strel as he attempts to become the first person to swim the entire length of the world's most dangerous river, the mighty Amazon. The legendary Strel swims rivers - including the Mississippi, the Danube and the Yangtze - to highlight their pollution to the world. He will lead a Q&A discussion after the film screening. On October 6, Strel will join swimmers from around the world for the 3rd Annual 10-mile Swim the Suck event through the Tennessee River Gorge as part of the RiverRocks festival. Come early to tour the Aquarium and experience our rivers of the world before the film! Aquarium Admission for non-members is additional.
