WHERE THE TRAIL ENDS: WHEELS TURN WHERE THEY’VE NEVER TURNED BEFORE!
Fresh on the heels of an epic Las Vegas world premiere, a new era of action sports film is unveiled with the release of 'Where The Trail Ends'. Produced by Red Bull Media House, in association with Freeride Entertainment, the movie is a global cycling spectacle unlike anything ever captured on film before. Crafted over three years with the most advanced filmmaking and sound equipment ever used in the outdoor adventure sport genre, the film immerses viewers in an extraordinary chronicle of exploration, chaos and culture, set amongst some of the globe’s most harrowing and remote natural landscapes.
Inspired by Red Bull Media House’s extraordinary 'The Art Of FLIGHT' snowboarding documentary, this is the soul and science of exploration as defined by two wheels. “The experience of making the film is something viewers will see first-hand. It’s the story of what it took to get there. And what it was like to experience the ultimate ride,” says rider Darren Berrecloth, considered one of the world’s preeminent freeriders. “We went into regions almost entirely unknown. And we often never knew whether we’d succeed or fail, or worse.”
Veterans of Freeride’s heralded 10-year New World Disorder film series, athletes and production crews were left physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted after the film’s expeditions to dispatches amongst the Andean foothills of Salta, Argentina, China’s Gobi Desert, Nepal’s near-secret Mustang region, the towering shorelines of British Columbia’s Fraser River and Virgin, Utah — big mountain freeriding’s punishing proving grounds and birthplace.
Where The Trail Ends’ storyline follows professional mountain bikers Berrecloth, Cameron Zink, Kurt Sorge, James Doerfling, Andreu Lacondeguy and another half dozen of the world’s top freeriders on both a timeless, epic adventure and an entertainment undertaking unparalleled to date.
Now, FISH MUNGA http://www.fishmunga.com is proud to announce their partnership with RBMH and Freeride Entertainment in helping to deliver this groundbreaking and inspiring production to audiences in the form of what they call a '3-in-1 Special'. The filmmakers have gone to great lengths to capture the action in eye-popping HD and true Dolby 5.1 surround sound, so of course the film is available on Blu-ray with surround. But for those who don't have a Blu-ray player yet, the same package features a standard definition DVD and instructions on how to view a free HD digital download.

But that's not all:
Fish Munga is also pleased to announce the addition of Rush Surges’ kayak film 'Frontier' to their online store - available on DVD. This joins a narrow selection of only the finest action sports films that are offered.
As a finalist in Banff 2012 and winner of the 2012 X-Dance Adventure Film of the Year, 'Frontier' highlights a crew of top kayakers traveling to new rivers in search un-run waterfalls in all corners of the globe, putting a strong emphasis on exploration, the progression of the sport and highlighting some of the hardest whitewater ever paddled. Among other epic scenes, it features Rafa Ortiz and Aniol Serrasoles's 128.6FT waterfall descent of Big Banana Falls, in Veracruz Mexico.
When asked about the latest additions to the product lineup available at fishmunga.com, filmmaker, Director of 'Congo - The Grand Inga Project', Steve Fisher had the following to say: "We're not trying to become the next big DVD distributor, that's not what we do, but we do want to help our friends and promote films that we like and respect. I'm a big believer in the idea that less is more, so this is where you'll find only the very best films in their genre. We even have half a dozen of our own films that aren't available here, simply because they aren't up to par. We need people to trust our recommendations in the future and the only way we can do that is if we're very selective in what we offer."
Not only is Rush Strurges a main character in Fish Munga's 'Congo' and 'Halo Effect', his collaboration with comes from deep within his own production company - 'River Roots'. He’s won his own awards and helped us win ours, and he's one of the world’s best all-round kayakers. We’ve been on many expeditions together, and been impressed by his calculated and balanced approach. But his skills don’t end at filmmaking or kayaking; as another musician in the ranks, he’s won multiple ‘Best Original Score’ awards… with his own music!
The 47 minute DVD is shot on Location in Mexico, China, Norway, Iceland, U.S.A. and Canada and Stars Ben Marr, Steve Fisher, Erik Boomer, Aniol Serrasoles, Rush Sturges, Rafa Ortiz, Todd Wells, Evan Garcia, Anthony Yap, Tyler Bradt, Patrick Camblin, Joel Kowalski, Ben Brown, Shane Raw, Jakub Sedivy and Casper Van Kalmthout
