The Great Divide

The Great Divide Film Debut and Southwest Colorado Showings

The debut of the much anticipated film The Great Divide occurred on August in Denver. There were more than 600 people in attendance and all proceeds went toward the purchase of a DVD copy of the film for every public library in Colorado. Understatedly, the film, with its wonderful cinematography and original music, was well received not only at the premier but with multiple viewings across the state. In southwest Colorado a showing on September 9th in Cortez yielded more than 100 attendees, September 10th in Durango nearly 200, and September 12th in Pagosa Springs over 100.

Tens of millions of people, billions of dollars of agricultural production, and an enormous amount of economic activity across a vast swath of America from California to the Mississippi River are all dependent on rivers born in the mountains of Colorado.  In a time of mounting demand and limited supply, the need for all citizens to better understand and participate in decisions affecting this critical resource is paramount.

The Great Divide, a feature length documentary film from the Emmy award winning team of Havey Productions, in association with Colorado Humanities, will illustrate the timeless influence of water in both connecting and dividing an arid state and region.
