Introduction by author Stephen Most and Q&A session following the film

Winner, Best Documentary Film at the American Indian Film Festival. “River of Renewal” tells the story of the crisis in the Klamath Basin straddling the California/Oregon border where competing demands for water, food, and energy have pitted farmers, American Indians, and commercial fishermen against each other. Remarkably, this conflict over resources has led to a consensus for conservation. The outcome may be the largest dam removal project in history and the restoration of a once vital river basin. Author Stephen Most will be on hand to introduce the screening and for Q&A following the film. For more information, click here.
