This year’s River Alliance-sponsored film festival features seven award-winning short films that span the globe. In Water Song (pictured), a Peruvian farmer takes on a giant mining corporation; the Kichwa tribe of Ecuador makes a splash at the Paris climate conference in The Living Forest; and the first Bangladeshi scales the Seven Summits in Wafisia. The Super Salmon follows a fish who beats the odds. And this is bound to be a winner: President Jimmy Carter paddles the Chattanooga River’s Bull Sluice in The Wild President. VIP pre-party starts at 5:30.
