The Balkan Peninsula is the refuge of Europe’s last wild rivers, which sustain an abundance of wildlife and create healthy ecosystems. The rivers are “undamaged” – clean, untouched and untainted. But with more than 2,700 hydropower plants planned or under construction in the Balkans, corruption and greed are destroying the last free-flowing rivers in Europe. Follow the Balkan Rivers Tour, a crew of kayakers, filmmakers, photographers and friends taking a stand for the rivers. Traveling for 36 days from Slovenia to Albania, kayaking down 23 rivers in 6 countries, they protest the construction of dams, giving us a glimpse of the secret rivers of the Balkans.

The all-Slovenian team of Rožle, Matič and Miha feel right at home crossing mountains, rivers and other obstacles in the wild, camera in hand. They dive into every documentary project they make full of enthusiasm and energy. During the filming of The Undamaged, they experienced numerous intense situations, from encounters with the mob to wild moments on the river. Constantly in search of new stories that do not get the attention they deserve – and the rivers of the Balkans are just that.
