Panel discussion to follow
Once flowing through nearly every developed city in the world, rivers provided the 
infrastructure upon which modern metropolises were built. In this adventurous and revelatory 
look into the disappearance and recent resurfacing of these historic waterways, Lost 
Rivers leads us down the drain into vast underground museums of urban development. 
Guiding us through the hidden river networks of London, Brescia (Italy), Montreal and Toronto, 
intrepid groups of subterranean explorers known as “drainers” reveal the buried waterways 
that house the secrets of each city’s past. Exploring recent initiatives to resurface and revitalize 
these forgotten waterways in Yonkers and Seoul, the fascinating Lost Rivers brings to life an 
aspect of urban ecology that has long been kept secret. 
 Critic’s pick – NOW Magazine 
“eye-opening” – Toronto Sun 
“fascinating” – Toronto Star 
“mysterious, highly dramatic, and entirely compelling.” – The Atlantic Cities 
“a fascinating examination of a hidden world previously unknown by most. It provides us with a spectacular look at an 
underground world with astutely observed editing and vibrant visuals” 
– Exclaim! 
"Alexandre Domingues' photography is crisp and clean, like pure water. 
Howard Goldbergs' editing too flows effortlessly." 
– Rabble
