'DamNation' film shows Sunday at Stanford

Audience discussion with Matt Stoecker follows screening

"DamNation," the documentary film on dam removal produced by Portola Valley's Matt Stoecker will be part of the United Nations Association Film Festival at Stanford University on Sunday at 4 p.m. in the School of Education CERAS Building, 520 Galvez Mall, Room 101.

After the film Mr. Stoecker, who is also director of Beyond Searsville Dam, will answer audience questions and discuss the film, dam removal benefits, and what he says is "Stanford's unique watershed restoration opportunity with the removal of the obsolete Searsville Dam."

Mr. Stoecker will also participate in a panel discussion on climate change at 6:15 p.m., discussing the role that Searsville and other dams play in the context of climate change and sea level rise impacts to San Francisco Bay wetlands.

Learn more on the festivals website. Tickets are $10 for the session which includes the short "Worse than Poop" at 3:50 and "Antarctic Edge: 70 degrees South" at 4:55. The panel discussion, "Climate Countdown" starts at 6:15 and is free.

Tickets may also be purchased at the venue.
