We are delighted to screen two local films this year - Viva la Verde! and Last of the Great Unknown.

Viva la Verde! explores the Verde River, which provides a ribbon of life through the harsh desert, forming an important and rare ecosystem. Man has made use of the river for hundreds of years but today unrestricted groundwater mining threatens the Verde's future. Will citizens accept their role as stewards of this emerging national treasure before it's too late? Filmmaker Hugh Denno explores this question in Viva la Verde!, a film that will empower the viewer to take action to ensure the Verde River has a long and healthy future.

Our second local film and new feature, The Last of the Great Unknown, is an award-winning documentary that showcases the Grand Canyon’s secret and intimate drainages rarely visited by man and the canyoneers who systematically explored these harrowing slots—often risking their lives to bring to light some of the Canyon's most remarkable features.
