Directed by Margaret Brown (Be Here To Love Me, The Order of Myths, The Great Invisible), the film explores the rich natural and human diversity of the Los Angeles River with a delicate, poetic touch. The short documentary is a moving and beautiful portrait of one of the great and unknown anomalies of Los Angeles — a river that was covered in concrete and is slowly being brought back to life. To make the film, Brown and her co-director, Jeff Peixoto, explored the river on foot over the course of a full year.
