Summary A documentary as dramatic, ambiguous, and multilayered as any fiction film, A River Below examines the efforts of two conservationists in the Amazon to bring about change by using the national media, only to discover the consequences of their actions come with a high price. Compelling and morally complex, the film may be a perfect movie for the post truth era of alternative facts. A River Below is about the power of video and its complicated relationship to the truth. What does it take to get a story? What is required for people to take action? A River Below provides an eye-opening look at what happens when passion and opinion trump reason and morality. The crux of the story questions the truth in images, its manipulation to get the public's attention and, ultimately, who pays the price for someone else's passion for radical change. Would you be willing to sacrifice the thing you love to save the the planet?
