Post-screening discussion featuring Candice Meneghin, Conservation Manager for Cal Trout

Please join the Los Cerritos Wetlands Land Trust for the 3rd Annual Sustainable Sunday Cinema at the historic Art Theatre for a mixer and screening of the critically acclaimed film DamNation.

DamNation documents an inspiring movement to restore rivers to health by removing low value, high cost dams. Majestic cinematography and unexpected interviews from diverse interests travel through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, and also through a metamorphosis in values. And DamNation is not without its action heroes, including the activist/artist who scaled down the Matilija Dam in Ojai California painting a giant pair of scissors. Sharing a common desire, supporters work to restore rivers, preserve tribal customs, recover fish stocks, revitalize waterfronts, improve recreational opportunities and render watersheds more resilient to climate change.

Doors open at 10am. Come early to enjoy a mimosa and mingle with partnering organizations the Sierra Club, Friends of Colorado Lagoon,, and Green Long Beach.
Film begins at 11am. Advance tickets are $10+processing, $12 at the door.

After the screening, attendees are invited to stay and hear from Candice Meneghin, Conservation Manager for Cal Trout, about the effort to ensure there will be resilient populations of wild fish thriving in the healthy rivers of Southern California, including our own San Gabriel River.
