Directors JENNIFER PEEDOM & JOSEPH NIZETI (United States 2021) 75 min
Majestic imagery and transportive music from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, command this meditation on how rivers have shaped both the globe and human life since the beginning of time. With narration from Oscar®nominated actor Willem Dafoe and footage of rivers across six continents, the film takes audiences inside glaciers, across plains, and through the skies—showing the ways modern society is both harnessing and harming these ancient sources of life. From the establishment of civilizations to some of today’s biggest modern cities, this wondrous film examines how rivers and humanity intertwine. Atmospheric music and rhythmic cinematography combine to create an awe-inspiring and chill-inducing experience.
