France, Feature Documentary, 2022, 85 min
Adventurer, competitor, daughter, friend, pioneer, hero, and badass human are all words used to describe French kayaker Nouria Newman. In Wild Waters, we follow Nouria as she prepares to become the first female to run a 100-foot waterfall; we watch her grow from a young, keen Olympic hopeful to one of the greatest kayakers of all time - male or female. However, running some of the world’s hardest whitewater isn't Nouria's biggest life challenge. Facing personal trauma throughout, Nouria pushes back to make her own path, transforming into her truest self as an athlete and a woman, becoming a once-in-a-generation kayaker. PARTIALLY SUBTITLED Subtitled.
