A River Below directed by Mark Greico is an investigative journey into the Amazon that follows a TV star and a renowned marine biologist as they each attempt to save the endangered pink river dolphin from being hunted to extinction.

The film has its World Premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in the Documentary competition.

A River Below captures the Amazon in all its complexity as it examines the actions of environmental activists using the media in an age where truth is a relative term. The film follows a reality TV star and a renowned marine biologist as they each attempt to save the Amazon pink river dolphin from being hunted to extinction. With gorgeous, sweeping aerial views we gain perspective from above, but as the film plunges deep into the murky, tangled rivers, we uncover a scandal that has no simple solution. A RIVER BELOW is a completely unexpected film – a knotty poem of duality and dissonance and a journey into ourselves as we attempt to better this world.

Director Mark Greico’s last film MARMATO was an official selection at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and went to win numerous awards.
