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.
Starting at mount Kailash, where four of the world's most sacred rivers are born of melting ice, and ending in the great Sundarban mangrove deltas of Bangladesh and India, where fresh becomes salt, River traces a songline from source to sea. Accompanied by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the audience will be taken on a journey through space and time in this orchestral and atmospheric concert film. Spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on a scale and from perspectives never seen before - a true ode to our world's natural waterscapes.
