River pays tribute to the waters that sustain our lives on earth. Drawing together the stunning photography, captured via new filming technologies and incredible drone footage, the film is narrated by Willem Dafoe from a script by Robert Macfarlane (Mountains of the Mind, Underland), with a score provided by Richard Tognetti of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and directed by Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa, Mountain). Co-directed by Joseph Nizeti, the film also features music from William Barton, Jonny Greenwood and Radiohead.
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 a sparse, poetic script creates a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.
