Bay Area Independent film makers Brian Lilla, Scott Douglas and Greg Miller are fundraising to complete a documentary that covers the a proposed dam project in Patagonia and local reactions to its impact.  From the video description, "Shot in January 2009, this video captures the people, water and mountains of Patagonia's pristine Rio Baker. A mega hydroelectric scheme threatens this vital corridor and Patagonia’s future hangs in the balance. The documentary Patagonia Rising is investigating the hopeful solutions to Chile's energy future while addressing the global need for clean water and free flowing rivers."
