Friday, February 11, 2011

The premiere of the film was an outstanding success.  Please see the film's main page for updates and future showings of the film.

The United States premiere of this film by Carla Pataky played to a standing-room only crowd at the Point Reyes Film Festival on February 26th and 27th. You can watch the film for free online, and download a free copy for educational or artistic use. The film is available in English or English with Spanish subtitles.

The documentary offers a personal and hopeful introduction to one of the biggest threats facing our world's lifelines, as told by the people at the forefront of the global movement. Filmed at the Rivers for Life 3 meeting – a gathering of 350 river activists from 50 countries, held in rural Mexico – this documentary touches on issues such as how climate change will affect rivers and dams; what happens to communities displaced by or living downstream of large dams; and what kinds of solutions exist that both preserve our life-giving waterways while meeting our needs for energy and water.
