DamNation | Film 2014 | SXSW

February 7, 2014
Dam removal is no longer the work of a fictional Monkey Wrench Gang. It's real, upon us, a cornerstone of the modern environmental and cultural movements. DamNation is a collection of impassioned voices and spirited stories from the people entrenched on both sides of this divisive issue. Examining the history and controversy behind current and proposed dam removal projects, DamNation presents a dynamic perspective on Man's attempt to harness and control the power of water at the expense of nature. Nothing lasts forever, not even the concrete monoliths that have impounded America's free flowing rivers in the name of "progress" for ages. Directed by: Travis Rummel, Ben Knight Cast: David James Duncan, David Montgomery, Katie Lee, Bruce Babbitt, Elmer Crow, Edward Abbey, Mikal Jakubal, Lee Spencer, Doc Hastings, Tom McClintock
