It’s blind faith to believe in this movie!
Stumbling home after a big night out on the town, Daniel walks by a river where he thinks he sees something extraordinary; something that defies all conventional wisdom and belief. He cannot shake his belief in what he has seen, so much so that his entire world is
turned upside down and inside out.
As Daniel searches for answers, he becomes consumed by this image of a monster swimming around in the river near his home. In the end, does the monster exist? Or is the real question that it does not matter if the monster exists as long as Daniel believes it does?
“The Monster In The River” started as an off-the-cuff joke: What if there is a loch-ness style monster swimming around in the Yarra? From there, a whimsical film about obsession and belief emerged! I hope it is a film that you will enjoy.
