Sustainability Film Series: RiverBlue

March 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Institute on the Environment, the Bell Museum, University Services Office of Sustainability and University Dining Services host a Sustainability Film Series from February to May. Films are selected to reflect issues that resonate with University students, faculty and staff.

The second film in this series, RiverBlue, is presented with the Weaver’s Guild of Minnesota.

Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favorite iconic products, our clothing, has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival. This documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. It focuses on the power of water and the importance it has in multiple cultures, while exploring the international inequity of manufacturing processes, global consumerism and capitalism.

Watch RiverBlue and enjoy some free food followed by a panel discussion with students, faculty and community members.


When: Wednesday, March 6th | 6 – 9 PM
Where: 100, 10 Church St SE (Former Bell Museum Auditorium)
The event is free and open to everyone.


RiverBlue is presented in partnership with the Weavers Guild of Minnesota as part of their Fiber to the People! Program, a year-long series exploring sustainable pre-Industrial Revolution weaving, spinning, and dyeing methods.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
