Artistic Director Leslie Tomkins, Music Director Michael Barrett at Living Rivers & Colorado Riverkeeper co-founder John Weisheit will be on hand to introduce the Festival’s two-season commemoration of water and the Colorado River.

Artists & Program

An exploration of the timeless relationship between human civilization and Earth’s rivers spanning six continents, this visual and musical tour-de-force is by turns celebratory, cautionary, and ultimately hopeful that we are beginning to understand rivers in all their complexity and fragility. The film is narrated by Oscar Nominee Willem Dafoe with music by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Radiohead.
