RiverBlue (2016, Canada)
RiverBlue is an award-winning documentary narrated by water-supporter Jason Priestley, that follows international celebrated 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 yet, shocking, never-before seen images that truly change the way we look at how our clothing is made. 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, RiverBlue will have you asking your favorite brands how your clothes are made.
The film journeys through some of the world's most pristine waterways to some of its most polluted, taking viewers for a behind the scenes look at a major, yet tragically under-reported, water pollution problem. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, the manufacturing of OUR clothing is destroying rivers globally. With stops in India, the United States, China, Australia, Africa, India, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, Bangladesh and the United Kingdom, RiverBlue is a global expedition granted with the Flag Award from the US based Explorers Club, in recognition of the film’s attempt to push new ground from an exploration, scientific and public awareness perspective.
Shot in 5K with images both stunning and shocking, RiverBlue acts as a rallying demand to our top fashion brands to change the way our clothes are made.
