KEEP THE RIVER ON YOUR RIGHT is a startling shot-on-video documentary that proves beyond doubt that truth is stranger than fiction.

The story of Tobias Schneebaum, KEEP THE RIVER covers both spiritual and geographical landscapes. A Jewish artist who also turned out to be Gay, Schneebaum was an outsider's outsider until he journeyed into the jungles of the Peruvian Amazon in the 1950's and became even more odd: a possible practising cannibal.

Exploring his return to the region decades later, filmmakers Laurie and David Shapiro document an incredible physical and emotional journey to West Papua, where Tobias encounters his old lover Aipit, and on - to the deep Amazonian jungle.

Keep The River On Your Right has all the hallmarks of modern cult documentary classic - and best of all, it's true.
