NOT A DISTANT BEAST (USA, 2009, 10 min.)
This film explores one man’s relationship with a river that runs through the city he lives in. Carl Cole, a lifelong Washington, D.C. resident, formed a deep relationship with the city’s most polluted natural resource, the Anacostia River, which led him to become a water sportman and an activist and steward of the river. Directed by Douglas F. Williamson.
Discussion with filmmakers Douglas F. Williamson (Not a Distant Beast) and Robert Nixon and Stephanie Slewka (“River of Hope”) follows screening.
Shown with "RIVER OF HOPE": WELCOME TO OUR CITY, MR. PRESIDENT
