The 73 minute film, MOUNTAIN RIVER, follows the Esopus Creek, from its headwaters on Slide Mountain in New York’s Catskill Mountains, to the Ashokan Reservoir, and on to the Hudson River at Saugerties - a fascinating journey of 65 miles. The documentary highlights the continuing challenges of climate change and ongoing conservation efforts on the creek, and it reminds us to treat the Esopus with respect.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is filled with personal stories and anecdotes and features a lively mix of vintage and contemporary photographs and images. Footage includes interviews with New York City and New York State experts, local historians, and conservationists, as well as on-the-creek fly fishing plus stories from anglers and residents. Extensive aerial footage offers a new perspective on the Esopus, the Ashokan Reservoir and the Hudson River.
Music by Tim Kapeluck, Jay Ungar, Evan Pritchard, and the late Artie Traum.
MOUNTAIN RIVER is produced and directed by Glenford filmmaker Tobe Carey, and co-produced by photographer and Catskills’ Fishing Guide, Mark Loete, of Chichester.
