Silent River

When we planned this, it was about a celebration of the river. But it’s hard to see a river really hurting

Matt Moseley

“Silent River” is a short film following Matt Moseley, a world record breaking long distance swimmer, who attempts a 52-mile swim from Mineral Bottom near Moab, down the Green River to the confluence with the Colorado River. Matt has never not finished a long distance swim. However this time it’s different, as now is he not only embarking on a physically punishing athletic endeavor, but battling against the worst drought in history at the same time.

We have the solutions. We know we have to use less water – on the ag side, the municipal side – we just have to be willing to do it and have the political will to use less. It’s go time

Matt Rice, American Rivers Southwest Region Director
