Co-presented with the Embassy of Switzerland

Following disastrous floods, a vast construction project is in the process of revitalizing the Rhone by removing the concrete straitjacket, and instead enlarging the river’s bed to promote river life. This engaging and lyrical film is a journey that prompts a universal questioning of our past and future relationship with nature and territory.


Q&A — Mélanie Pitteloud (Director); Sky Sitney (moderator)
