World Premiere in May!
Just three and a half years after the idea was first planted in my head, Power of the River is set for its grand debut.Taking that long to make a movie may sound crazy to some of you. I can't deny it has been quite the journey. Average documentaries, from my research, take as many as eight years to complete. Power of the River is far from average, but it is a self-funded, truly independent project. So I'm thrilled to start getting this important story out into the world so quickly.
Not that we rushed it. On the contrary, my creative collaborators and I have logged something over 4,000 hours on this labor of love. There was uncertainty. There was heartbreak. There were minor disasters and wonderful discoveries. All indications are that we have created something beautiful. See Mr. Redford's words of praise:
