This Week’s Snag Film: River Ways

The state of our lakes, rivers, and oceans is a hot topic in the news right now, so this week’s Snag Films documentary offering is especially prescient.  RIVER WAYS explores the lives of regular working people affected by the issue of four dams on Snake River in Eastern Washington.

Filmmaker Colin Stryker journeys to Washington state, where he chronicles the lives of everyday citizens struggling on either side of a divisive issue: whether to remove a series of hydroelectric dams from the Snake River. While groups of American Indians, environmentalists and fishermen advocate for removing the dams to replenish the local salmon population, farmers and other locals rely on the dams as an inexpensive source of electricity.
