River: Film Screening
Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys, and flowed through our cultures and dreams.
‘River’ takes its audience on a journey through space and time, spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming. The film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. It is union of image, music and sparse, poetic script creates a film that is both dream like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.
‘River’ is the sequel to the 2017 hit documentary ‘Mountain’, reuniting the creative team of director Jennifer Peedom, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, narrator Willem Dafoe and writer Robert Macfarlane.
