Overview

The team behind Stone River (Mountainfilm 2010) and Orion magazine bring us this short film, which, simple, balanced and richly shot, is fully consonant with its theme of nature’s timeless cycles, unchanging truths and abundance. Watch the Delaware River as it flows around, past and through an ancient stone weir designed by a decidedly old-school fisherman to catch migrating eels. The moving river creates a sound like applause—a rippling, bubbling, liquid ovation—for the virtues of patience, acceptance and devotion.
