TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY


TROUBLED WATERS: A MISSISSIPPI RIVER STORY (USA, 2010, 57 min.)

The development of America’s bountiful heartland and its effect on the legendary Mississippi River are traced in this film. Knitting together federal energy, farm and environment policies against the back drop of the Mississippi River watershed, the film unifies these seemingly discrete entities into a coherent whole, helping viewers to grasp what is a profound truth – that a single drop of water in Minesota is connected to the “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico. Through beautiful photography and inspiring narrative, it offers solutions to the river’s troubles, from upstream to the gulf and the difficulties it faces, providing fresh ideas and concrete solutions. Directed by Larkin McPhee. Produced by Bell Museum Productions.

Introduced by Anthony Clark, NRDC representative. Discussion with Barbara Coffin, Executive Producer, Bell Museum Productions, Daniel Engstrom, Environmental Scientist, featured in the film, and Bob Deans, Associate Director of Communications, NRDC and co-author of “In Deep Water: The Anatomy of a Disaster, the Fate of the Gulf, and How to End our Oil Addiction” follows screenings.

Shown with STORIES FROM THE GULF: LIVING WITH THE BP OIL DISASTER
