Washington, D.C. Premiere “Rivers are life” is the theme motivating activists in the global movement to protect rivers from the ravages of big dams. The film explains how climate change will affect rivers and dams, what happens to communities affected by large dams and what can be done to preserve life-giving waterways while meeting needs for energy and water. Interviews with activists from India, Mexico, Kenya, Mozambique, Australia and the United States are featured, along with footage of places at risk and the people working to protect them. Directed by Carla Pataky and Lori Pottinger.
