dam documentary

posted November 2, 2012

Examining the history and controversy behind current and proposed dam removal projects, DamNation is a forthcoming documentary that 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. Patagonia’s founder Yvon Chouinard and Matt Stoecker hatched the idea for DamNation at the 2011 Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
