RiverBlue is a new documentary that chronicles an around-the-world river adventure, led by paddler and river conservationist Mark Angelo. In his shooting, Angelo ends up uncovering and documenting the dark side of the global fashion industry.
The film had its world premiere at the opening of the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) in British Columbia, where it was nominated for the Festival's prestigious Impact Award.
RiverBlue sets out to change an industry in an important effort to make it more sustainable and ethical. The film, narrated by actor, director and long time water supporter Jason Priestley, will travel to a host of festivals in the future.
"Because we all buy clothes, ranging from denim to leather, this issue takes the river conservation message to a much broader audience in a way we can all relate to. It's a vitally important and timely topic," Angelo told Explorer's News.
