Film Series Presents “A River Between Us”

arbuThe Hoffman Center for the Arts Manzanita Film Series will screen the 2014 documentary film “A River Between Us” Friday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. Admission will be $5.

Directed by Jeff Martin and produced by former Oregon State Senator Jason Atkinson, the film tells the story of the oldest and most bitterly disputed water war in the West today – Oregon’s Klamath River.

The documentary focuses on the century-old, sociopolitical battle over water rights and the historic coalition that rose to end it.

The struggle has pitted farmers, fishers, ranchers, native tribes, local and regional industry, environmental activists, state politicians, and the federal government against each other

“We created this film to be a cinematic call to action on behalf of the largest restoration project in American history,” said Atkinson.

The film lasts 90 minutes, and refreshments will be available.
