Silent River is a documentary film by American Rivers about Matthew Moseley's unprecedented 52-mile river swim attempt from Mineral Bottom near Moab, down the Green River to the confluence with the Colorado River. Silent River is a film about his triumphant 39.6-mile swim, but Silent River is at its core about how rivers are hurting due to drought, climate change, and overuse.
