CHASING WATER (USA, 2011, 19 min.)
Colorado native Peter McBride grew up in a ranching family that depended on the Colorado River for irrigation. His simple desire is to find out where the irrigation water of his youth went after his family used it, and how long it took the water to reach the ocean. This 1,500-mile journey shows how the thirst of the 30 million people that the Colorado supports takes an unhealthy toll. Written by John Waterman. Directed by Peter McBride. Honorable Mention, 2012 Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
Introduced by Eric White, Adult Librarian, D.C. Public Library, Tenley-Friendship Neighborhood Library. Discussion with Steve Fleischli, Senior Attorney, Water Program, Natural Resources Defense Council, follows screening.
