According to their website, “River’s End reveals California’s complex struggle over who gets fresh water, and 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, and what is happening in real time in Northern California’s Bay-Delta. This time, the water grab is at the hands of Big Agriculture.
Winner of both 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 on them.
