Don't miss this chance to see 7 fascinating short films on urban watersheds at Evergreen Brick Works. Although rivers and waterfronts are critical to the health of cities, many are in need of revitalization or transformation. From Saint John to Milwaukee to San Francisco and others, these films share glimpses of the inspiring journeys of individuals and groups as they took very different actions to protect their water, often against substantial odds.
