"★★★★ – Serenity, wonderment and worry mix in this awe-inspiring, musical tour of the Earth’s waterways" – Time Out
"Spectacular montage-doc" – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
Following their path from source to sea, Jennifer Peedom presents an expertly crafted documentary that explores, in cinematic glory, the ever-changing relationship between humans and rivers.
Beautifully narrated by Willem Dafoe, featuring an irresistibly immersive soundtrack and directed by Jennifer Peedom, this follow up to her documentary Mountain gently flows and guides, much like the subject of the film, and shows the fragile symbiosis between us and the planet we live on.
There will be an introduction and talk prior to this screening from Leicester City Councils' Saving the Saffron Brook team.
