Synopsis

‘Power of the River: Expedition to the Heart of Water in Bhutan’ – An adventure from the last Himalayan kingdom. Home to the world’s most ambitious commitment to protect nature, Bhutan faces urgent pressure to dam every river. A man named “Good Karma” guides an expedition to keep his country’s mightiest river free. Even as his countrymen are pulling away from their roots toward the electric lure of the city, Karma Tshering guides foreigners deep into Bhutan’s wilderness. There he shares the wisdom of his culture— the very last of the fading Himalayan kingdoms— hoping it’s not too late to rekindle reverence for our planet’s wildest places. Karma dreams of keeping one, just one, of his country’s rivers wild and free. He has assembled an international team for a first-ever flyfishing expedition down his country’s mightiest river: The Drangme. “A cinematic adventure into the heart of wilderness, Power of the River captures the connection between people and the rivers that are our lifeblood.” -Robert Redford.
