RIVERBLUE Documentary Film Q&A with Filmmaker Roger Williams

Date: 03/29/2022
Time: 7:00 pm-8:00 pm

Following international river conservationist Mark Angelo, RIVERBLUE (2017) spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. RIVERBLUE brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.
