Potomac: The River Runs Through Us

Part of the Women and Water: A World Water Day Celebration Shorts Program

Each of us is connected to rivers in our everyday lives. Most of the six million people living in the Potomac River watershed do not realize that their drinking water comes from the Potomac. This film follows the flow of the Potomac water from its origin, into our homes and businesses and back into the river. We become aware of the need to protect this essential resource and its connection to our wellbeing and that of future generations. Directed by Peggy Fleming. Produced and written by Sean Furmage.

Program introduced by Stephanie Flack, Executive Director, Environmental Film Festival in the Nationв’s Capital and discussion follows with filmmakers and subjects of the films.

Followed by reception from 1:45 to 2:30 p.m.

No reservations required. Tickets to the World Water Day program are $5 general; $4 members, seniors, and students.

Please note that this ticket price is for the film program and reception only and does not include admission to the museumв’s galleries.
