Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. This documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. It focuses on the power of water and the importance it has in multiple cultures, while exploring the international inequity of manufacturing processes, global consumerism and capitalism.
Watch RiverBlue and enjoy some free food followed by a panel discussion with students, faculty and community members.
When: Wednesday, March 6 | 6 - 9 p.m.
