The Ister is a 2004 film directed by David Barison and Daniel Ross. The Ister was inspired by a 1942 lecture course delivered by the German philosopher Martin Heidegger, published in 1984 as Hölderlins Hymne »Der Ister«. Heidegger's lecture course concerns a poem by the German poet Friedrich Hölderlin about the Danube River.
This vintage postcard, circa 1942, features the Suwanee River in Florida. The back of the postcard offers a short poem: "Way down upon the Suwanee River / Far, far away / There's where my heart is turning ever / There's where the old folks stay."
