Colorado River documentary screening Saturday at Shrine of the Ages

GRAND CANYON, Ariz.- Chasing Water, The Colorado River: Source to Sea is filmmaker and photographer Peter McBride's documentary journey that explores the Colorado River's role as it winds through its dry western settings.

McBride is a renowned photographer, filmmaker, adventurer, speaker, and writer. His work has been published in the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, Outside, Men's Journal, and Sports Illustrate as well as many others. McBride's coverage has included work in over 65 countries but as a native of Colorado, he returned to cover his beloved Colorado River. The Colorado River, one of the longest rivers in the U.S., is also one of the most controversial. With a growing population, as well as irrigation, and water rightaways tapping its supply, the river has been permanently altered.

In Chasing Water, The Colorado River: Source to Sea, McBride uses photography and film to portray the role of the river and follows it from beginning to its end.

The program takes place Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Shrine of the Ages.
