Wash My Soul In The River’s Flow (PG)

The film is a love story told in song and spoken word, from the points of view of Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter — First Nation singer-songwriters and icons of Australian music.

Ruby and Archie have performed with the best – Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Paul Simon, Sting and Joan Armatrading, among others. In 2021, Roach was on the cover of Rolling Stone as one of the 50 most influential Australian artists of all time with AC/DC, Nic Cave, Kylie Minogue, Michael Hutchence and Sia, among others. Ruby signed with a major record label in 1993, the first Indigenous woman to do so. She is a trailblazer and hero to a new generation of First Nations women in music including: Jess Mauboy, Alice Skye, Casey Donovan, Emily Wurramara, Barkaa and executive producer of Wash My Soul In The River’s Flow, soul singer Emma Donovan.

 

This beautiful film is, in every way, a memorable experience.”
