The film will be shown at the Historic Jones Theater in Westcliffe on Thursday, November 12th at 7:00pm.

There is no charge for the movie.

“The destiny of the West is written in the headwaters of Colorado”, shared Jim Havey, Producer and Director of the documentary. “Our film illustrates the timeless influence of water in both connecting and dividing an arid state and region. From Ancient Puebloan cultures and the gold rush origins of Colorado water law to agriculture, dams, diversions and conservation; the film reveals today’s critical need to cross “the great divide,” replacing conflict with cooperation.”

The doors open at 6:30pm with an introduction and welcome by Director/Producer Jim Havey beginning at 7pm, followed by a Q& A after the movie.

Tens of millions of people, billions of dollars of agricultural production, and an enormous amount of economic activity across a vast swath of America from California to the Mississippi River are all dependent on rivers born in the mountains of Colorado.  In a time of mounting demand and limited supply, the need for all citizens to better understand and participate in decisions affecting this critical resource is paramount.
