A River Film


“A River Film” is a story about people, and how they have, over many years, constructed a relationship with a river to support the needs and aspirations of many users, while working to maintain the environment that supports those differing priorities.

The central player in the story is the river, but the story can’t be told without a focus on the people of the region. Their story concerns complex relationships with other people, fish, and the wider Columbia Basin. “A River Film” is an annual story. As the years repeat, the story of the river unfolds in a pattern.
