Crafted as a “river movie” — fluid and constantly in motion — River Silence is an auteur feature documentary in which critical contemporary analysis is infused with potent lyricism. Employing an aesthetic coloured by Latin American Magic Realism, Brazilian Baroque and reflecting a culture heavily influenced by intense religious beliefs and practices, River Silence immerses viewers in an extraordinary universe about to be severed from its lifeblood due to resource extraction, environmental degradation and uncontrolled development.
