satirical writer and avid kayaker George Wolfe organizes a boating expedition
down the entire 52 miles of the notorious Los Angeles River, he and his motley
crew become entangled in a legal controversy of national proportions. With
startling images of the LA River, insightful interviews and a quirky sense of
humor, Rock the Boat looks at the
challenges society faces in providing clean water to urban populations, and
delivers a bright alternative to the current spate of doomsday docs. Join the Environmental Law Center and Institute on the Environment and Sustainability for a screening of Rock the Boat, followed by a discussion with director Thea Mercouffer, kayaker George Wolfe, and Los Angeles River advocates and experts. Free admission.
