About: River’s End reveals California’s complex struggle over who gets fresh water, and shows how moneyed interests game the system. Constant battling over uncertain water supplies heralds an impending crisis�”not just in California, but around the world.
Using California as a microcosm, River’s End explores the global water crises. It draws the parallel between the draining of the Owens Valley by LA, made famous by CHINATOWN, and what is happening in real time in Northern California’s Bay-Delta. Except this time, the water grab is at the hands of Big Agriculture.
Winner of both the Jury Award and the People’s Choice Award at the 2021 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, River’s End implores viewers to learn where their water comes from so that we can save our rivers and the ecosystems and communities that depend upon them.
River’s End is an important and consequential film – an examination of California’s past and present water supply wars. The SF Bay Delta, its ecosystem and native fish, fowl, and wildlife it supports, is the heart of California’s current battle, and it’s well past time to fix our broken water system before it’s too late.” – Jared Huffman, US Congressman
