Video: Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk Trailer

Rock/Creek and Greenlife Grocery are proud to present a new IMAX film at the Tennessee Aquarium in downtown Chattanooga, TN. The film, “Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk,” has a strong conservation message, explaining in clear terms how intensely our water resources are being strained by the demands of population growth. Robert Redford narrates and the Dave Matthews Band provides the soundtrack. Robert F. Kennedy, founder of the Riverkeepers, as well as anthropologist and author Wade Davis travel down the river on a rafting trip with their daughters and Shana Watahomigie, a member of the Havasupai tribe and the first Native American to become a National Park Ranger and river guide.

The film opened today for a limited audience of local school children and the media. I attended the preview and have to say that the movie was well worth watching. I didn’t realize how drastically world population growth has effected our water resources. The Colorado River, in fact, no longer reaches the delta. One of the most striking images from the film shows a cracked and completely dry river bed where the Colorado used to flow. I’ll post photos from the event tomorrow. The movie opens Saturday the 15th, and will run for several months. Be sure to stop by the Aquarium IMAX and check it out.
