Silent River (USA, 2014, 25 min.), exposes how U.S. companies have used Mexico’s Santiago River as their own “waste canal.” The documentary follows a young woman and her family as they defy death threats to try to save one of the most polluted rivers in Mexico. Directed by Jason Jaacks and Steve Fisher.
Seeding A Dream (USA, 2014, 15 min.) highlights Sheepscot General Store & Uncas Farm, a famously fertile piece of land in Maine that had produced food for centuries-and once boasted its own store. It has been revitalized into a thriving community food hub by two young farmers who continue to face financial challenges. Directed by Bridget Besaw.
Reaching Blue: Finding Hope Beneath the Surface (Canada, 2014, 22 min.) follows a writer, an oyster farmer and an ocean scientist in the Salish Sea, who find their coastal way of life under threat and evaluate the challenges they face with the help of imagery from deep-sea submarines, advanced ocean research vessels and drone cameras. Directed by Ian Hinkle.
The National Geographic Museum will be open until 7:15 p.m. prior to this event.
