About the event
A chance to attend the premiere of a stunning new documentary film, River Wharfe: A Living Artery, followed by a Q&A with film-maker Mark Barrow.
An underwater photographer and clean rivers campaigner, Mark spent five years documenting the entire 65-mile length of the Wharfe. Using scuba gear, a pole-mounted camera and a drone, he shoot footage below and above the river’s surface.
The resulting documentary is a visual and emotional journey that celebrates the timeless beauty of the River Wharfe, while inspiring a deeper connection to the natural world and a commitment to its conservation.
One of the most ecologically diverse rivers in England, the Wharfe is home to countless animals, birds and fish. but a shocking increase in the levels of pollution now threatens the local wildlife. As a campaigner, Mark is hoping this film will help to raise awareness of the damage done by pollution, climate change and the destruction of habitats.
