SONGS OF THE NORTHERN RIVER
TWELVE STORIES. SIX TRAVELLERS. ONE JOURNEY.
SONGS of the NORTHERN RIVER is a 60 minute anthology of twelve enchanting short stories that explore how people navigate change. The songs flow together to reflect an absurd, tragic and heartfelt picture of human resilience.
A lost traveller rows down the Northern River at night, glimpsing yellow wisps of light in the distance. As she draws nearer, they whisper stories of past travellers, and those yet to come.
