A 2016 documentary infused with hope, Return of the Riverexplores an unlikely victory for environmental justice and restoration.  The film follows a group of committed tribal members and activists who attempt the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town and eventually the nation to bring two dams down. Ultimately the community comes to consensus, launching the largest dam removal in history. The film is 71 minutes, and after we watch it we’ll have a discussion about what actions we can take on climate change and other environmental justice issues. Free admission and popcorn is included. BYOB encouraged. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the film starts at 7:00 PM.
