From director Jennifer Peedom comes a powerful collaboration created as a companion film to the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s (ACO) record-breaking production, Mountain. River is another extraordinary tale of nature and humans as partners and adversaries. It will take audiences on an astonishing journey spanning six continents and draw on extraordinary contemporary cinematography to show rivers on a scale, and from perspectives, never seen before.

With a musical score performed live and directed by Richard Tognetti, featuring his original music alongside Bach, Vivaldi, Ravel and Jonny Greenwood, balance is sought.

River is a reminder that it is never too late to ask ourselves: ‘are we being good ancestors?’ The film examines pleasure, loss and the consequences of our actions, while all the while immersing us in the experience of body and water, of music and life.
