Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, RiverBlue spans the globe to expose one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.
On November 19, 20 cities worldwide are premiering the documentary to unveil facts the fashion industry doesn’t want you to know. The San Francisco premiere is followed by a lively Q&A with industry experts so you can walk away with actionable ways to buy better and wear your values on your sleeve. After the Q&A, continue the conversation over cocktails at ABV with the Bay Area’s industry insiders.
