The Hudson: A River at Risk

To Attend:


On Tuesday February 16th at 6pm, The Bard Center for Environmental Policy, The Bard Environmental and Urban Studies Department, and the Bard College Sustainability Council present a screening of three short films collectively titled The Hudson: A River at Risk by Jon Bowermaster. Discussion to follow with the filmmaker.

Jon has been making documentary films about water for years and recently played a large role in galvanizing advocacy for New York’s anti-fracking movement with his film Dear Gov. Cuomo and he is now at work on a new film addressing federal policy on the issue called Dear Mr. President.

Regarding The Hudson: A River at Risk, Jon writes on the site, “Specifically we wanted to take a close-up look at three distinct risks: The so-called “bomb trains” carrying a highly explosive gas and oil mix along the riverside from the shale fields of North Dakota to Albany and to Philadelphia; the 50-year-old nuclear power plant at Indian Point, which continues to operate even as its infrastructure ages; and the rebuilding of the Tappan Zee Bridge, currently the largest construction project in North American with a potential to create serious environmental harm if not closely monitored.”

The screening is free but please register on Eventbrite to reserve a seat.
