The River is an experimental short documenting the repetitively traumatic nature of pregnancy. Director Hsu Ya-ting explores childbirth and the physical and emotional toll that childbirth took on her personally. In her film, Hsu uses her body as a canvas, providing viewers with a most intimate view of what the female body is subjected to when bringing a pregnancy to term.
