Welcome to Lost Rivers

Once upon a time, in almost every city, many rivers flowed. Why did they disappear? How? And could we see them again? This documentary tries to find answers by meeting visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world.

Lost Rivers is now available on DVD!! The DVD includes the 72 minute film as well as bonus material and video extras. Order today at the Catbird Productions store.
