Watering the West: A Water Western Film Trilogy – 3 Film Premieres
April 9 @ 6:00 pm - May 15 @ 3:00 pm
Watering the West: A Documentary Trilogy enlightens audiences about water issues in the American West: past, present, and future, including where the water comes from, where it goes and how it gets there, the unique nature of western water law and its origins, and how growing populations and a changing climate will impact a diverse group of water users that rely on the rivers that deliver the mountain snow melt that makes the American West habitable. Through personal stories from city planners, farmers and ranchers, re-creators and ecologists, beer brewers and the oil and gas industry, we will explore trans mountain and local diversions; storage projects and farms; water court and water auctions, a Day in the Life of a Ditch Rider; backcountry Wild and Scene River explorations; and the listening sessions, council meetings and forums where opinions divide neighbors, towns, and industry leaders.
WATERING the WEST educates, entertains and presents a case for cooperation around one of the most pressing issues of our time.
