A new documentary film bridges the gap between fashion and floating.

RiverBlue — narrated by actor, director and long time water supporter Jason Priestley and led by paddler and river conservationist, Mark Angelo — is a new documentary that chronicles an around-the-world river adventure by Angelo, who 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) this October in British Columbia.

riverblueNominated for the Festival’s Impact Award, RiverBlue sets out to change an industry in an important effort to make it more sustainable and ethical. The film will travel this fall to a host of festivals throughout North America.

“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,” says Angelo. “It’s a vitally important and timely topic.”
