Grab the popcorn and a seat on the couch because Asheville-based filmmaker + director Garrett Martin’s documentary “The River Runs On” is now available for streaming.

The film centers on the US Forest Service’s Nantahala-Pisgah National Forest Plan, which details how the forests will be managed for approximately the next 20 years. See the journeys and trials that conservationists face as they manage the historic land, telling a deeper story of the human relationship with nature.

The ~56 minute film is available to rent ($1.99-$2.99) or buy ($4.99) on Amazon Prime. After you watch, leave a review of the film to help it spread to a wider audience.

If you’d rather catch the flick in person, you can see it tonight, Thursday, Sept. 28 at UNC Asheville’s Humanities Lecture Hall as part of the university’s Greenfest.
