Join two filmmakers who are renowned for capturing extreme feats of adventure in remote and inhospitable environments. Based out of British Columbia,  Bryan Smith brings stories of adventure to the screen, from the South Pacific’s deepest canyons to the frozen waters of Niagara Falls. And whether chasing tornadoes, hanging from massive natural arches, or swimming with alligators, Keith Ladzinski takes on the seemingly impossible to document the endeavors of the world’s most elite adventurers.

Nat Geo Live Virtual Speaker Series events are open to guests of all ages. Parents and guardians are advised to use their own judgment based on the description of each event.
