Description: Description Once upon a time, in almost every city, many rivers flowed. Why did they disappear? How? LOST RIVERS takes us on an adventure down below and across the globe, retracing the history of lost urban rivers by plunging underground with clandestine urban explorers. We search for the disappeared in Montreal, Toronto, London, New York, and Brescia, Italy. Could we see these rivers again? To find the answer, we meet visionary urban thinkers, activists and artists from around the world.
