"And the River Flows On"


Screening Room
Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N. Cascade Ave.



"And the River Flows On" is a documentary about four Mexican farm communities attempting to thwart the construction of a dam/hydroelectric complex on the Papagayo River. The communities fear that more than 17,000 acres of forest and farmland would flood, and more than 25,000 people would be displaced by this project.

Director Carlos Pérez Rojas develops this story from the perspective of Communities Opposed to La Parota Dam (CECOP). Sans narration, the film is entirely objective, but allows viewers to understand in depth how various indigenous communities are affected by this project.
