Upriver is an immersive exploration of one of the Nation’s most active river conservation movements. Within Oregon’s heavily populated Willamette River system, the film focuses on people from all walks of life who are coming together in forests, farmlands, and cities to revive the health of this large river and the life it supports. The film gives hope and how-tos to anyone working to protect our most precious resource… and is a poetic reminder that we all live Upriver.


Directed by Jeremy Monroe and David Herasimtschuk. Produced by Jeremy Monroe. Special guests Tom Tidwell, Bob Irvin, David Lawrence, Kate Meyer, and Allison Hensey.
