Condit_Dam“DamNation” (2014) is a powerful film odyssey across America that explores the change in our national attitude from pride in large dams as remarkable feats of engineering to a call for removal of dams that interfere with the Earth’s ecosystems. Beautifully filmed, this study of dams and the damage they can cause to wildlife, soil, and plant life is both inspiring and informative. The documentary runs 1h 34mins. This program is sponsored by the organizations Together Yes (Sustainability Series) and the Neponset River Watershed Association.
