Giveaway: River

Région Amazonas : Fleuve Orénoque et forêt amazonienne près de La Esmeralda

Narrated by Willem Dafoe, RIVER is a profound cinematic and musical reflection on how rivers have shaped both the planet’s elaborate landscapes and all human existence. We’d love to look at collaborating with Ciao Mag on a ticket giveaway to celebrate the release of the film to cinemas.

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 sparse, poetic script create a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.

RIVER is the sequel to the 2017 hit documentary MOUNTAIN, reuniting the creative team of director Jennifer Peedom, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, narrator Willem Dafoe and writer Robert Macfarlane.
