About the Event
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 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, the poetic script will create a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognizes their vulnerability.
Please join us after the screening of River for a panel discussion on the current challenges of climate change to the Lowcountry of South Carolina's waterways and to the communities most intimately connected to them, and what those communities can do to restore our waterways, atone for errors of the past, and create a future where we can live with the water.
