About this movie

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers.

This is a great representation of how our country and fisheries work. The word that comes to mind is dysfunctional. I wish I knew what I know now. not only do we try to choke out our resources but what we do have ends up over seas. I hope this is a spark to fire that brings change.

This was an excellent film that tells its story well. I recommend it. The only thing I would change would be to add more of the economic arguments in support of dam removal and healthy rivers. We are going to need those arguments when the next Congress checks in come January 2015.

Droughts are perpetuated by mismanagement of our rivers by government and environmentalists. Dams are important for water storage, hydropower, and flood management.
