New Beginnings for a Blue Economy
Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper worked with Anna Scime to produce a video that captures the essence of what is being accomplished locally to realize the vision for a Blue Economy.
Everybody Lives Downstream
Riverkeeper collaborated with Squeaky Wheel as part of their work to produce a series of short documentaries about under-reported local issues impacting our region. Film makers were connected with community groups and non-profits to tell their stories. EVERYBODY LIVES DOWNSTREAM is a short film by Anna Scime that examines the history of the region’s past and present relationship with the Buffalo River, as well as remediation and restoration efforts.
