"It's been said, in the hush of years gone past, you couldd hear the roar of the great giant from many miles away, look up - just beyond the horizon as white billowy columns rise high from behind the tree line."
Embark on a journey of discovery. The mighty Niagara and surrounding park lands are rich in history and human struggle. Poetic and personal in its approach and epic in feel, "Niagara:Thunder of the Waters" ignites the imagination. Far away from the flashing neon lights, modern high-rise buildings... far away from the stunters attempts at fame and glory; the film captures the essence, the heart and the soul of Niagara that millions of tourists per year desire to experience. Painted with the backdrop of human history on its landscape, personal remembrances of great Canadians and Americans are lifted from the pages of history and tied with the never ending flow of water and time. Two years in the making, the movie unites local filmmaking artists with a desire and passion to illuminate the scren with soul inspiring, moving images and stories of Niagaa and the people who fought for her preservation.
