Miditech to film first ever commercial river run on Brahmaputra

MUMBAI: Miditech claims to have acquired exclusive rights to film the first commercial river run of its kind, down the Brahmaputra river.

The documentary, will encapsulate the unique geographical beauty of this great river and culture that lives on its banks, through the eyes of an international expedition who will also be acquainting themselves with the local adivasis of the region. The production house will send an international team of 22 professional rafters from the US, UK, Canada, Germany and India in November in an attempt to descend the majestic waters of the Brahmaputra in north east India. Miditech plans to tie up with international distributors to market this film to channels across the world.

The group will undertake an eight day expedition to tackle the rapids. The white water rafters will roller coaster 180 kms on one of the most powerful and untamed rivers of the Indian subcontinent. Riding on to grade four and grade five rapids, these riders will test their skill, resilience and strength. The film will trace the arduous route up to the starting point from Tuting through Yinkeong west to the final destination of Pasighat, says Miditech.

The team will be acquainting with tribes, living along the river and worshipping the Donyi- Polo (Sun-Moon). Miditech's other production 'The Lions Of Gir', is currently distributed worldwide by Granada. It has been bought by 12 countries as well as the Discovery channel, claims Miditech.
