Symposium & Film Series on Watersheds, April 26th & 27th

Presented by the Elemental Arts Initiative and Environmental Analysis Program of the Claremont Colleges.

A two-day event on water and water resources that are right beneath us. Join us for a provocative set of documentaries that probe the politics and cultural meaning of watersheds, an essential feature of life in the American West. Meet some of the filmmakers who crafted these compelling films. And on Friday join an interdisciplinary discussion about the water beneath our feet.
