River (2021)
Director: Jennifer Peedom and Joseph Nizeti
75 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our journeys, flowing through our cultures and dreams. River is a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers. Spanning six continents, and drawing on extraordinary contemporary cinematography, including satellite filming, the film shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before. Directed by Jennifer Peedom and Joseph Nizeti, and written by Robert Macfarlane with music composed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s (ACO) Richard Tognetti, the documentary also features music by Jonny Greenwood and Radiohead and narration by Willem Dafoe.

The film’s union of image, music and sparse, poetic script creates a dream-like narrative, honoring the wildness of rivers but also recognizing their vulnerability, and reflects on how rivers have shaped the planet’s elaborate landscapes and human existence.

Following the Walk-in Cinema screening on Sunday, December 11 at 16.00, the film will be streamed online between December 26-30 via
