Using the flow of a river as a metaphor reflecting the movement of time, The River tells the story of the communities and people connected to the River Severn from Tewkesbury to the Severn Bridge. Filming through the seasons, capturing the beauty of the river from different view points and its constantly moving shape over a year, the film will combine these images with the tales of the country folk, the seafarers, fishermen, farmers, artists and many other people that have stories to tell.
The film will examine the rapid pace of change and what the future might hold.
The screening is part of Stroud Film Festival 2018 and takes place at Hawkwood College, which has expansive views over the Severn Vale.
