A cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers.
Rivers are the arteries of our planet, and the means by which humanity continues to thrive and survive. By looking at the profound impact river systems have had in shaping human history, this film seeks to shift perceptions around the urgent threats which have been mounting towards the world’s great rivers in the last century: reckless pollution, irresponsible water wastage, and damming driven by corporate and political greed.
Beyond these immediate threats to the health and quality of rivers around the world, this film seeks to change perceptions and help audiences understand the true threat of climate change - and the tipping point we have found ourselves at as a species.
River is a reminder that it is never too late to ask ourselves: ‘are we being good ancestors?’.
