In honor of World Water Day, CineCulture will show the short films “Silent River” and “Sea of Troubles” beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 22, in the Alice Peters Auditorium (Peters Building Room 191).

Silent River” by Jason Jaacks, follows a young woman and her family as they defy death threats to try and save one of the most polluted rivers in Mexico, the Santiago River, known locally as “The River of Death,” which flows along the outskirts of Guadalajara.

Sea of Troubles” explores some of the strangest conditions ever seen off the West Coast of the U.S. over the past three years. The film follows an oceanographer and a paleoclimatologist as they ponder what’s next for the world’s largest ocean.

The screening is sponsored by the Center for Creativity and the Arts, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Tehipite Chapter, the Sierra Club and Fresnans Against Fracking. Admission is free and parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays.
