A Sundance award-winning documentary that chronicles eccentric Slovenian endurance swimmer and "eco-superhero" Martin Strel's attempt to swim 3,375 miles down the mighty Amazon River. While he and his motley crew battle predators, pollution, rapids, and psychological distress, Strel flouts his failing health -- refueling on wine, whiskey, and car batteries. As tensions and blood pressure rise, the journey becomes a larger-than-life legend that is as strange and profound as Strel himself. Dark, humorous, and stunning, Big River Man is the surreal portrait of an extraordinary man who knows no limits.
