LIKE A RIVER FLOWS is a lyrical meditation on the wonder of water and how that might apply to taking care of our rivers and our own lives. This docu-poem, filmed, written and narrated by Liz Zetlin, is based on four lines from Irish poet John O’Donohue’s poem “Fluent”: I would love to live Like a river flows Carried by the surprise Of its own unfolding. Over a period of one year, Zetlin observed and documented water as it appeared in her life.
