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
I watched this on Netflix, thinking I was just going to watch a movie about some good people fighting some bad people in order to save dolphins. Instead I got a deeply personal look inside politics, media, and the ethics of conservationism in the Amazon. There are no heroes or villains, just human beings, living side by side with nature, and trying to protect what matters most to them. Very interesting watch.
