Special Event! DamNation Film Screening in Niles


Alameda Creek Alliance presents DamNation

Friday, July 24, 7 pm
Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, Fremont, Calif.
Ticket info coming SOON! The screening is a benefit for the Alameda Creek Alliance.

Join the Alameda Creek Alliance for a special screening of DamNation, the award-winning documentary film about dam removal, on Friday, July 24, from 7-9 pm at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, 37417 Niles Boulevard in Fremont.

Get your tickets today to view this powerful film odyssey across America that explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation's majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
