Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, RiverBlue follows international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, on a journey that uncovers the dark side of the fashion industry. Spanning the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, and speaking with fashion designers and water protectors world-wide, RiverBlue reveals stunning and shocking, never-before seen images that truly change the way we look at how our clothing is made. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products, blue jeans, is destroying rivers globally. Shot in 5K with images both stunning and shocking, RiverBlue acts as a demand for significant change from the top fashion brands, regarding how our iconic jeans, and in fact most clothing, is manufactured. This groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. An exquisitely crafted, fascinating, emotional and moving documentary turned global agent for change”

Directed by David McIlvride and Roger Williams. Produced by Roger Williams and Lisa Mazzotta.
