    Asheville Filmmakers, John Grace and Thomas Oliver, present a premiere film event at the Fine Arts Cinema in Asheville on Thursday April 24th at 9:30pm. Two films will premier showcasing the whitewater kayaking culture which is nestled within the creeks and rivers flowing throughout Western North Carolina and beyond.

    “This premiere is for anyone who has ever seen a kayak on top of a car around here and wondered where it’s been. It’s an eye into the whitewater community which calls Asheville and the Western North Carolina mountains home.” Oliver states.

    The first film is a short directed by Oliver and entitled "On the Down Low." It follows three characters as they make plans to break from their everyday routine to kayak the Green River, the home river of choice for many WNC paddlers. "This is the river that attracts so many paddlers to our region." adds Oliver. "On the Down Low" provides a brief glimpse into the lives of these kayakers while showcasing the beauty of the rivers they play on.

    The second film for the evening will be the world premiere of Lunch Video Magazine's 26th DVD issue. Lunch Video Magazine, LVM for short, is a unique whitewater industry video magazine which features the freshest and most exciting video footage of the latest kayaking expeditions on a quarterly basis. "This business has always been about kayaking. More specifically, kayaking with our friends." Grace reflects.
