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 and work by such authors as Yann Arthus-Bertrand, 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.
