From its headwaters in the Rockies to its terminus in the lonely delta lying just short of the Sea of Cortez, the Colorado River, as described by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride, is a system with “too many straws in the drink.”
McBride’s film Delta Dawn chronicles his mission to reach the sea via the severed river—come hell or no water.
Meet the filmmaker on Dec. 4 at the Colorado Greenbacks’ Winter Film Event.
“We’re excited to announce our Winter Film Event, which will be held on December 4th at the Oriental Theater in Denver, CO. We will be highlighting Delta Dawn by award-winning photographer, writer and filmmaker Pete McBride, the winner of the Best Short Mountain Film in Banff this year. Pete will be onsite to discuss the film and what it means to him to see the Colorado try to reach the ocean for the first time in decades. In addition, we have other amazing short films before the premier.”
