"Damnation," screening on Thursday, May 22, at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St., explores the sea change in our national attitude about dams, dam removal and river health.
A reception begins at 6 p.m.; the film shows at 7, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
The film looks at the diverse interests across the country coming together to remove obsolete dams and find more cost-effective ways to meet power, shipping, irrigation and other needs, while helping to restore rivers, preserve tribal customs, recover fish stocks, revitalize waterfronts, improve recreation and render watersheds more resilient to climate change.
Admission: $10 for the film; $20 includes the reception. More: damnationfilm.com.
