Straight from MIFF comes the River, directed by Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa) and narrated by Willem Dafoe - a  film that explores the timeless relationship between humans and rivers.

A profound cinematic and musical reflection on how rivers have shaped both the planet’s elaborate landscapes and all human existence.
 
Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys; 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. Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script create 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.
