For Immediate Release - Hot on the heels of a successful, sold-out premiere in Salt Lake City, 'CONGO: The Grand Inga Project' now comes to the rest of the world on Blu-ray™, DVD and as a digital download.

Red Bull Media House, in association with Fish Munga, has unveiled the official trailer for 'CONGO: The Grand Inga Project', a Steve Fisher film, giving audiences a taste of what’s to come. Viewers worldwide can watch the new trailer and learn more about the expedition and the film's release at http://www.ingaproject.com.

'CONGO' chronicles kayak icon Steve Fisher as he and a team of the most talented paddlers on earth tackle a first descent of the Inga Rapids in the heart of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The Inga Rapids are a deadly stretch of whitewater and the world’s highest volume rapids.

The riveting documentary follows Fisher and his elite team as they struggle to navigate the complicated logistical challenges and crooked politics of the DRC, and then the world’s most dangerous whitewater in their historic navigation of a 50-mile section of the Congo River that has claimed the lives of numerous explorers, and been considered un-runnable for centuries.

For this mission, Fisher handpicked a tough-as-nails team of professional paddlers including Tyler Bradt of Missoula, Montana, Benny Marr of Ottawa, Canada, and Rush Sturges from Forks of Salmon, California. During their epic descent of the Inga Rapids, the team encountered massive 20 foot breaking waves, deadly whirlpools, and semi truck-sized hydraulics. With a flow of approximately 1.6 million cubic feet of water per second, the Inga Rapids are twice as steep as and more than 80 times the volume of those found on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

The 81-minute documentary is available as a special collector’s edition that not only includes a 3-in-1 package of the CONGO film (Blu-ray™, DVD and digital download), but viewers will also receive a Blu-ray™ and digital download of Fisher’s 2011 paddling film 'Halo Effect', all for only $29.95. visit: http://www.fishmunga.com/store and again: http://www.ingaproject.com
