Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation and CPCC - Center for Sustainability invite you to Our Rivers vs. Us, a film festival focusing on how we affect our water and how our water affects us.

Location:  CPCC - Tate Hall: 1201 Elizabeth Ave, Charlotte, NC

Time:  5:30 Reception sponsored by Trader Joe’s (Metropolitan location).

          6:30 Films begin; panel discussion to follow.

Admission:  $7; $5 (students)

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 704.330-6534 or at the CPCC Box Office the day of event. 

 

The films will focus on the changing water quality as it travels through the underground springs of Florida; tourism lost and lives displaced due to building of dams; and “what if” water were rationed? There will be a panel discussion following the films. Featured films include: Water’s Journey: The Hidden Rivers of Florida, The Last Descent, and A Drop of Life.

You might ask the panel if they think modernization of power is worth the sacrifice of our natural resource; what can we do differently on land to keep our water clean; does he who control water, really control? These films will certainly get you thinking about how we partner with our water.
