A River


The new film “A River” starring actor Michael Sheen will be premiered at the University of Central Lancashire on 29 July from 7pm.

The Northern Premier, which will showcase and discuss the visually stunning film directed by Anthony Tombling, will take place in conjunction with Friends of the Earth, Creative Communities Group, and Renewable Energy Alliance Lancashire.

The narrative explores the history of the River Afan in South West Wales, currently under threat from pollution by gas and oil giants, and plots its journey from a precarious past to an uncertain future.

Including heartfelt testimonials from local residents, incisive narration from Michael Sheen and original music composed by Robert Del Naja & Euan Dickson of Massive Attack, the film has been deemed a ‘must see’ for communities engaged in struggle for environmental and social justice.
