Caught by the River

Downstream – A River Odyssey

22nd January 2022

A new short film in which filmmaker and musician Danny Hammond takes a journey down the River Ouse in Sussex.

The maker writes:
From the heartland of East Sussex flows the River Ouse, through grassland, villages and industrial netherworlds. Hiding dark histories of suicide, lost battles and spiritual shifts, this poetic journey charts the river’s course and all the life she affects on her way to the sea. It’s the first in a series of short films about rivers and life on the periphery in the UK.
