return of the River, feature documentary, 2014

"Return of the River is hell-raising documentary filmmaking at its best, packed with natural beauty and a comforting message that hope is not lost for our bruised planet."

A documentary infused with hope, Return of the River explores an unlikely victory for environmental justice and restoration. The film follows a group of committed tribal members and activists who attempt the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town and eventually the nation to bring two dams down. Ultimately the community comes to consensus, launching the largest dam removal in history. The film offers inspiration amid grim environmental news, showing how an idea moved from "crazy" to celebrated reality.
