Let the River Run is a magical journey through Glen Canyon before it was hidden forever behind Glen Canyon dam. Created from original film footage taken by legendary environmentalist David Brower and lost for 30 years, Lili Schad reconstructs the adventures of John Leslie Powell, Katie Lee and Brower himself in one of natures most splendid places, now buried under 200 feet of water. Narrated by Lee and Brower, Let the River Run is David Brower’s last work before his death.
