Join us in celebrating Colorado River Day by watching WATERSHED. July 25, 2018 is the 97th anniversary of this day in 1921 when U.S. federal legislation was passed to officially re-name the river from the “Grande” to the “Colorado”. We now commemorate this day by encouraging people to come together across divides in support of maintaining a sustainable Colorado River.
Executive produced and narrated by Robert Redford and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mark Decena, WATERSHED tells the story of the threats to the once-mighty Colorado River and offers solutions for a new water ethic for the new American West. As the most dammed, dibbed, and diverted river in the world struggles to support forty million people and the peace-keeping agreement known as the Colorado River Pact reaches its limits, WATERSHED introduces hope.
Since its’ 2012 release WATERSHED has:
- Been an official selection of 53 film festivals, worldwide
- Won awards at the Bend Film Festival, the Barcelona International Film Festival, the Red Rock Film Festival and the Colorado Environmental Film Festival
- Screened in a dozen countries, in over 500 community settings (and counting)
- Broadcast on PIVOT TV
- Enlisted celebrity support to elevate the profile of the project, specifically Robert Redford, Will Ferrell and Kelly Salter
