Washington D.C. Premiere
RIVERWEBS (USA, 2007, 57 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere The film takes a close look at an international group of river ecologists who, through their late friend and co-worker, Dr. Shigeru Nakano of Kyoto University, share a story of tragedy, growth, and recovery. Across Eastern and Western cultures, this unlikely circle of friends and family shows us a very human side of science, while demonstrating how the process of discovery works. The inspiring lives and experiences of these scientists create a rich story of hope and interconnectedness, while providing a personal and fresh view of rivers, ecology and conservation. Directed by Jeremy Monroe. Produced by Freshwaters Illustrated.
Introduced by Ms. Misako Ito, Director, Japan Information & Culture Center. Discussion with filmmaker Jeremy Monroe follows screening.
