The River Short Film

Why Watch? By putting three lives in focus, this short doc from Adam Patterson and Sam Strickland mixes fundamental, universal elements of our relationships to craft a baptismal font for human nature. The result is both a spotlight for each as an isolated moment in time and a mirrored glimpse at the fullness of lives as they thematically bump into one another.

It’s a compelling exploration of the average as extraordinary, but it’s undeniable that the gorgeous photography aids in making the small seem epic. Still, the true wonder of the film is in how easy it becomes to see yourself in all three of its subjects.

What Will It Cost? About 7 minutes.
