A River Runs Through Us is a personal and hopeful introduction to one of the biggest threats facing our world's lifelines, as told by the people at the forefront of the global movement. Filmed at Rivers for Life 3 - a 2010 gathering of 350 river activists from 50 countries in rural Mexico - this documentary touches on issues such as how climate change will affect rivers and dams, what happens to communities displaced by or living downstream of large dams, and what kinds of solutions exist that both preserve our life-giving waterways while meeting our needs for energy and water.
