Whitewater in Peril
Jeff Litton | 2019 | 3 min
Bear River holds a world-class stretch of whitewater affectionately called "Hair of the Bear." Sadly, this famous stretch of river would be drowned underneath Centennial Reservoir if the proposed new dam is built. There are so many reasons Centennial Dam is terrible for the community, and this film showcases the jaw dropping and hair raising recreation that is at stake.

A Stone's Throw Away
Maxwell Wolff, Jake Smothers, Evan Patrick, Jordan Hill | 2019 | 9 min
Filmmakers Maxwell Wolff and Jake Smothers explore a local Northern California farm and discover a community of people committed to living fulfilling lives outside of the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

The Best of Both Worlds: Cohousing's Promise
John de Graaf, Doug Stanley, Greg Davis | 2019 | 27 min
Cohousing is a living arrangement providing both privacy and community. This film explores how a Danish model of intentional living has taken root in the US. Photographed by Doug Stanley, of Greatest Catch fame, the film includes insights from architect Charles Durrett and the experiences of cohousing residents in Nevada City, Grass Valley, Davis, and Fair Oaks, California.

From 9-10am, there will be a tour of Nevada City Cohousing (200 Redbud Way, Nevada City) led by the architect, Charles Durrett. Also from 1-2pm, a second tour will be offered at Wolf Creek Senior Cohousing (800 Freeman Lane, Grass Valley). Both will last for about one hour. Allow another 15 minutes to also see the gardens. Please park on the street (unless you choose to walk to Nevada City Cohousing for this near town tour.)

A Bird in the Hand
Sarinah Simons, Allison Paules Nelson | 2018 | 5 min
Birds amaze us with flight, song, and beauty, but their abundance in North America has declined by almost a third in the past 50 years. A team of committed volunteers is working together at Empire Mine State Historic Park to understand local songbird populations and inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.

Joe Flannery, Tahoe National Forest, Kyle Lancaster, Gigantic Film Co | 2019 | 21 min
150 years ago, Chinese Railroad Workers blasted and chiseled their way through the rugged Sierra Nevada Mountains while completing the Transcontinental Railroad. Despite this monumental achievement, the Chinese Railroad Workers' contribution was excluded, ignored, and forgotten from history. Today, grassroots groups are working together to retell the story of these workers' lasting legacy.

The Sacramento, at Current Speed
Tom Bartels, Round House Productions, Mitch Dion | 2019 | 38 min
The Sacramento River is a workhorse, hemmed in by freeways, channelized for agriculture and drinking. But there is a hidden river, where you can launch a boat and float 300 miles to the sea. This is a place of surprising beauty, home to otter, eagle, osprey, and endangered salmon. Can this river be a model for balancing human needs with a natural ecosystem?
