This short film is part of World Showcase Shorts Program 4.

This astute film swings from the calm of a forest stroll to the cacophony of a family in upheaval on the Fourth of July. A perceptive observation of family and landscape in crisis, At the River speaks to the anxieties of middle America at the beginning of the 21st century. Eileen Arandiga
