The Remains of a River: From Source to Sea Down the Colorado (Will Stauffer-Norris, USA, 2013; 47 min.) Zak Podmore and Will Stauffer-Norris, two recent graduates, decide to paddle the Colorado River from source to sea. From October 2011 to January 2012, hiking and paddling, they travel 1700 miles from Wyoming to Mexico. Along the way, they walk the Wind River Mountains, paddle the Flaming Gorge Reservoir, the Canyon lands, Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon and Lake Mead. Ultimately, the mighty Colorado is reduced to a trickle and they must hike through the Mexican desert to reach the sea. As they paddle downstream, they see firsthand the environmental damage inflicted on the Colorado River and consider the ethics of draining a wild river to support a desert civilization. The film features a few interviews with characters they meet along the way, who help shed light on the complexities of the Colorado River.
