1987, small town New Hampshire: The sci-fi fantasy world of two bullied 6th grade boys invades reality and changes their lives forever. An explosion of the music video into a narrative film, Down Down The Deep River was grown from the recent work of acclaimed indie band, Okkervil River, and directed by front man, Will Sheff. The song of the same name appears in multiple incarnations throughout the film – done in 80s-appropriate styles (new wave, soft rock, rap). A poetic, abstract tribute to classic children’s fantasy films, Down Down the Deep River was shot in and around Sheff’s hometown in rural New Hampshire and stars local actors.
