Down the Mighty River is a six-part documentary series about the Rupert River, one of the most magnificent wild rivers in the world, just before its destruction for a hydro-electric project in the summer of 2009.
Down the Mighty River is an intimate and moving portrait of the river’s story – its people, land, and wildlife – and the cultural and environmental impacts of one of the most environmentally destructive mega projects in the western hemisphere.
