"A River Below" captures the Amazon in all its complexity, examining environmental activists who use the media in an age where truth is a relative term. The film follows a reality TV star and a renowned marine biologist as they each attempt to save the Amazon pink river dolphin from being hunted to extinction. Gorgeous, sweeping aerial views give perspective from above, but as the film plunges deep into the murky, tangled rivers it uncovers a scandal that has no simple solution. "A River Below" is a completely unexpected film - a knotty poem of duality and dissonance and a journey into the hearts of those who struggle to better know the world.
