Overview

A companion piece to the 2017 documentary Mountain, Jennifer Peedom and Joseph Nizeti’s River is a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys; flowed through our cultures and dreams. River takes the audience on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. Both dreamlike and powerful, the film recognises our dependence on rivers as well as their vulnerability.

Official Selection
— Telluride Film Festival 2021

— Time Out

Why You Should See This Film

Like Mountain, River is also wonderfully narrated by Willem Dafoe and accompanied by music from the Australian Chamber Orchestra. This time, there’s the added treat of original compositions from Jonny Greenwood and Radiohead. A transfixing, poetic film that will make you rethink our waterways, and the devastating impact humanity has on them, River is a must-see from one of Australia’s finest documentarians.

HELM: CELEBRATING THE ART OF AUSTRALIAN CINEMA
