As part of the weekend, on Saturday 9th July 5.15pm , The Courtyard in Hereford are showing ‘River’- a cinematic and musical odyssey that explores the remarkable relationship between humans and rivers.

Come to Save the Wye’s screening of this amazing film which will be followed by a panel discussion on the state of the Wye.

This beautiful film celebrating the world’s rivers is written by adventurer Robert Macfarlane and features music by Radiohead, Jonny Greenwood, Richard Tognetti and William Barton.  It has won prizes for its sheer beauty and innovative cinematography – drones, satellites and conventional filming make it a unique experience

Throughout history, rivers have shaped our landscapes and our lives; flowing through our culture and our dreams.  RIVER takes us on a journey through space and time; spanning six continents, it shows rivers on scales and from perspectives never seen before.  Its union of image, music and sparse, poetic script creates a film that is both dream-like and powerful, honouring the wildness of rivers but also recognising their vulnerability.

From the Director of SHERPA and MOUNTAIN.

Save The Wye is a coalition of local community groups committed to protecting this precious river including Friends of the Upper Wye, Friends of the Lugg, Friends of the Lower Wye, Friends of the Dore and CPRE Herefordshire.
