Mark Decena, USA, 2012, 57 mins
The Colorado River defines the landscape of the American West. The water it provides brings livelihoods to millions of people along its course. Yet with increasing demand this precious resource is at risk. Watershed, written and directed by Bay Area filmmaker Mark Decena and co-produced by Jamie Redford, brings audiences beautiful images of the river’s dramatic geography and the shocking fact that the river already runs dry before it reaches its natural end at the Gulf of California. But this is an optimistic tale. Narrator Robert Redford, introduces people that live, work and enjoy the Colorado River and are working to do things differently. A Los Angeles bicycle activist, a Navajo Nation councilwoman, a Colorado fly-fishing guide, and a restoration ecologist in Mexico, all have at least one thing in common – introducing us to a new water ethic. This prize winning documentary provides inspiration for us all to make more sustainable water choices.
This event is co-presented by the San Francisco Green Film Festival, the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center, and the Green Stacks Program of the San Francisco Public Library.
