A Peek at a New Documentary Examining Waterways

To paraphrase René Magritte: Ceci n’est pas une première. Not a première. But maybe just as good or better, a preview of a première. Of a feature-length documentary film by Anna Scime called Everybody Lives Downstream, a major component of an ongoing multimedia project on the ongoing megaproject restoration of area waterways and adjacent lands. The preview is scheduled for Saturday, June 28, at 3 p.m., at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, and is free.
