the transformation of canoeing
The real-life story behind the movie
The documentary Going Beyond the River tells the true story of how Piers Cruickshanks and Siseko Ntondini teamed up to compete in the 2014 Dusi Canoe marathon, and how this experience then became the subject of a major feature film, Beyond the River.
It also tells the story of how the sport of canoeing has been transformed from one in which there were very few black paddlers, to one where many of the top racers are now coming out of development clubs, such as the Soweto Canoe and Recreation Club, SCARC.
Produced by Indie Village Creative, with funding from the National Lotteries Commission and sponsorship by ADreach.
