RENEWAL – A Reborn Colorado River Once Again Finds Her Path to the Sea

Posted by Infra on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Narrated by Robert Redford, Renewal captures the breathtaking and historic surge of water that was released into the Colorado River in the Spring of 2014. The water surge, called a “pulse flow” was a grand experiment of the US and Mexican governments, and the many nonprofits and advocates working on saving the river’s mighty Delta. The new water created, once again, a river to the sea. Families, children and communities celebrated the return of the water, as did the birds and wildlife in the region. On May 14, 2014, the cool, fresh water of the Colorado River touched the salty water of the Upper Gulf of California — an event that has not occurred regularly in at least a half a century. The pulse flow was an initiative associated with the historic 2012 agreement between the US and Mexico, called Minute 319. 

The film is about 10 minutes in length. Produced and directed by Andrew Quinn in association with Owen Bissell. Original music soundtrack by Halcyonaire. A product of Raise the River.
