Guardians of Our Troubled Waters

September 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Award-winning film director David Weintraub’s latest documentary Guardians of Our Troubled Waters, tells the story of our early communities and their deep connections to their rivers and streams as a source of spiritual sustenance, as their lifeblood and as a critical component of their livelihood, how that changed during the industrial era when paper mills, tanneries and other manufacturing plants turned clean, protected water into moving cesspools, and the heroes who rose to challenge the destruction.  So much of our environmental consciousness and economic vitality sprung from the champions of our waterways of the past.  So much of our future depends upon our ability to continue their legacy today.

Guardians focuses on three communities — Western North Carolina, East Tennessee and South Florida, the stewardship efforts that grew to protect the French Broad River, the Pigeon River and the Everglades and the lessons learned for today’s world.
