River presents a unique perspective on the exquisite, endless beauty found in the intimate motions of river water and the animated reflections and refractions of sunlight and sky. Image sequences of the river and the interplay of the moving water and changing patterns of reflected light are merged into a playful choreography bound by the music score. The final effect is to make the viewer marvel at the natural splendour of the river, with subtle but profound impressions. This work is both documentary and art, meant to elicit gratitude and reverence for rivers and other bodies of water.

Water Docs is supported by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
