Storyline

A RIVER BELOW captures the Amazon in all its complexity as it examines the actions of environmental activists using 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. With gorgeous, sweeping aerial views we gain perspective from above, but as the film plunges deep into the murky, tangled rivers, we uncover 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 ourselves as we attempt to better this world. Written by Sandarba

Honored at many of the World's best festivals, ARB should have been nominated for an Oscar. Fascinating, intelligent, beautiful doc shot subject to what appear to be unimaginable logistics and danger. A probing drama offering unique access to largely unknown struggles to save Amazon river dolphins and an unexpected confrontation of corruption related to the Amazon and conservation in general. Add an investigation of Machiavellian manipulation of images in media and the film provides a magic brew of story elements. The "anti-hero" is an unforgettable character. A real tour de force. Excellent.
