In the spring of 2021, Alyssa Winkelman (Sufferfest Queen), Ari Kosel (chill master), and Jamie Trapp (cheese connoisseur) embarked on a source to sea adventure on the Sacramento River. They traced over 440 miles of the river from its source in the Klamath Mountains all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco Bay. Their mission was to develop an inspirational force that empowers the public to take action on key environmental and social issues surrounding the Sacramento River.
Their resulting film A River’s Reach chronicles their journey and the diverse stakeholders they interviewed along the way to better understand the most pressing issues the Sacramento River and its communities are facing. Give it a watch and learn more about this watershed!
Jess Wiegandt 2023 Grantee is “stunned and overwhelmed.” Her film “A River Called Home” has been awarded the 2023 Capital Emmy for Student Non-fiction Long Form! She wants to give a “Huge thanks to all who have hosted screenings of the film so far” and is looking forward to what’s to come.
Watch the trailer and see if the film is coming to a town near by checking out the website. We’ll keep you posted when the film is available publicly!
