North America – a continent of daring and drastic extremes, of conquerors and visionaries, of untamed wilderness and feats of human engineering – and its rivers are a fascinating example. The US has the largest dams, the deepest locks, the longest canals and aqueducts in the world. Rivers have been modified and manipulated, forced into man-made paths, controlled by computers, even their flow has been reversed. World famous cities owe their names to these rivers: Miami, Detroit, Los Angeles - yet today they are hardly remembered.
In her five-part series, Academy Award nominated filmmaker Katja Esson paints portraits of five astonishing rivers and explores the intriguing connection between humans and the waters that feed their ambitions.
