Director Matthew Leutwyler
Drama

Set on the banks of a wild river, The River Why is the story of 20-year-old Gus Orviston, considered the Mozart of flyfishing, who leaves his big city home in rebellion from his family to live in a secluded cabin on the banks of a wild river. Instead of finding fishing bliss, his desolation drives him on a reluctant quest for self-discovery. In the process he comes in contact with an assortment of eccentric characters who help him in his journey to adulthood. Most of all, The River Why is a love story - the love of a man for the wilderness, and for a beautiful woman who comes to share it with him. Based on the wildly popular novel by David James Duncan.

Making contact with a French civil engineer working in Moscow, he passes documents containing some of the most important USSR secrets about the U.S. A tense drama that involves Ronald Reagan and François Mitterrand and pits the communist version of "Deep Throat" against the Cold War. Was he trying to save the world or only his son? Based on a true story, "Farewell" is an espionage film about events that changed history.
