The documentary film A River Speaks is an exploration of the Mill River, a small river in south-central Connecticut. More broadly, it is an examination of humanity’s complex relationship with nature. We love our rivers, but we treat them terribly, poisoning them with sewage, industrial waste, herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. And when we poison our rivers, we poison ourselves. Presented by the Branford Land Trust and Branford Arts & Cultural Alliance (BACA), the film serves as an inspiration, a warning, and a call to action. Following the film, filmmaker Steve Hamm will lead a Q&A/discussion.
