River of Life

River of Life features the reflections of 3 women dealing with breast cancer while out fly fishing on the waters of the Pacific Northwest. The narrative connects the struggles of wild, native and anadromous fish with the challenges the women face in their own lives, while also capturing the magic and joy of fly fishing. This film is brought to life by the sensitive and insightful cinematography of Todd Moen, whose camerawork captures the vibrancy of the natural world both above and below the water line. The film explores life’s tenacity, and its fragility.
