DOUBLE FEATURE: Buy a ticket for Mountain at 5:30 and stay for River! *Same night only
An exploration of the timeless relationship between human civilization and Earth’s rivers. Spanning six continents, this visual and musical tour-de-force is by turns celebratory, cautionary, and ultimately hopeful that we are beginning to understand rivers in all their complexity and fragility. Narrated by Oscar Nominee Willem Dafoe. With music by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Radiohead.
River does not request your attention. It demands your surrender. “I set out to inspire wonder,” says its writer-director Jennifer Peedom, who has form in this department. River is the second part of her proposed trilogy about the natural world, and it’s just as spectacular. Footage filmed by drones and satellites take you so far above the earth that its recurring patterns, laid out like a succession of abstract paintings, invite you to interpret them as a single grand design. Willem Dafoe’s sonorous narration charts the images’ sinuous progress as they wind their way over 39 countries on six continents—The Sydney Morning Herald
