UK cinema release for new Australian film River
March 16, 2022 @ 8:00 am - March 31, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Australian director Jennifer Peedom’s new film River will be released in cinemas in the UK next week. Narrated by Hollywood star Willem Dafoe, it 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. Written by Robert Macfarlane, with a score by Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) and featuring music by Johnny Greenwood and Radiohead.
“Peedom makes it a feast for the senses with the stunning footage she’s assembled coupled with gorgeous music played by the Australian Chamber Orchestra” – Collider
Previews begin on 16 March.
