(Film Screening Friday, March 17, 5:30 p.m. Peter’s Education Center Auditorium west of Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building)

March 17: RiverBlue (2016)
Discussant: Roger Williams (Director)

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, RiverBlue spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. 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. RiverBue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference. 83 minutes, http://riverbluethemovie.com/

This film is being screened in recognition of World Water Day March 22

Sponsor: Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom
