The Potomac River

POTOMAC: AMERICAN REFLECTIONS (USA, 1992, 57 min.)

Everyone knows the Potomac as the river that flows past Washington, D.C. But what do we know about the river beyond our capital city? This film follows the 382-mile course of the Potomac from its origins at a small spring in West Virginia, through old coal town communities, past solitary nomads and bargemen’s children who grew up on the C&O Canal to mountain farms, survivors of the Piscataway Indian tribe and finally to the 12-mile wide river of ships that meets the Chesapeake Bay. Produced by Robert Cole Films and Sugarloaf Regional Trails.

Program Welcome by Ed Merrifield, Potomac Riverkeeper. Film Introduced by filmmaker Robert Cole.
