Down River

  • Directed by Ben Ratner
  • Vancouver/British Columbia/Canada, 2013, 93 mins.

VISITING ARTIST—“Writer/director/actor Ben Ratner tells an emotionally stirring story of three young women—Fawn, a talented but insecure actress; Harper, a gifted rock singer teetering between self-destruction and self-discovery; and Aki, a scatological artist who emerges from under her paint-stained hoodie like a drunken butterfly. Inspired by Ratner’s longtime friendship with iconic Vancouver actress Babz Chula, this is a funny film about mentorship, friendship, living life to the fullest, and, ultimately, letting go.”—Vancouver International Film Festival. Winner of the Most Popular Canadian Film Prize at the 2013 VIFF.
