River of Lives
Travel by boat, immersed in a live soundscape part manufactured and part naturally occurring. Feel the river beneath you, hear it described by the many who use it. A meditation on the Maribrynong River, weaving personal accounts, historical facts and glimpses of the ordinary and extraordinary people who inhabit it.
