The Lost Rivers documentary takes us across the globe, retracing the history of lost urban rivers by plunging into archival maps and going under-ground with clandestine urban explorers. We’ll search for the disappeared Petite Rivière St-Pierre in Montreal, the River Tyburn in London, the Saw Mill River in New York, and the Bova-Celato River in Bresica. Along the way, we’ll meet visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world. Following the film, we will turn our thinking to local examples creek restoration (Bowker Creek) and daylighting (Cecila Creek) with local engineering experts:

  • Steven Fifield, City of Victoria (retired)
  • Craig Sutherland, Kerr Wood Leidal
