Don't miss the L.A. premiere of the environmental documentary Rock the Boat with guest speakers at the Downtown Independent Theater.
A reception with appetizers and a no-host bar, sponsored in part by Whole Foods, will take place from 7-8 p.m., followed by an 8:00 p.m. screening and a 9:00 p.m. Q&A with the filmmakers and special guests. Guest speakers include L.A. City Councilmember Ed Reyes, TreePeople President Andy Lipkis, L.A. River Revitalization Corp.'s Exec. Director Omar Brownson, LA River Project Office's Co-Director Carol Armstrong, and L.A. River Expeditions' President George Wolfe.
About the movie: When satirical writer and avid kayaker George Wolfe organizes a boating expedition down the entire 51-mile length of the notorious Los Angeles River, he and his motley crew become entangled in a legal controversy of national proportions. With startling images of the L.A. River, insightful interviews and a soft spot for humor, Rock the Boat looks at the challenges society faces in providing clean water to urban populations and delivers a bright alternative to the current spate of doomsday docs.
