River

Straight from MIFF comes RIVER, directed by Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa) and narrated by Willem Dafoe - a film that explores the timeless relationships 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 a score 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 scales and from perspectives never seen before - a true ode to our world’s natural waterscapes.
