On behalf of Rocky Mountain PBS and the Colorado Office of Film, Television & Media I’d like to invite you to join us for an exciting premiere screening.

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, February 26th @ 5:30 pm, when we will be screening “Western Water and Power,” a new episode of the RMPBS show The Colorado Experience. The Colorado Experience is an award-winning half-hour documentary series on RMPBS that explores Colorado history and culture. Since 2015, our office has helped to produce the "roadshow," which tours statewide and celebrates Colorado history and original television content.

In this 60-minute episode, you'll learn however since Western settlers dreamed of deserts in bloom, men have chased the mirage of more water than these arid lands can provide.  “Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting” describes the urgent struggle every generation of Coloradans faces to control this fleeting resource -- creating hydrodynamic history through structures that can propel water to run uphill toward money, and power.

Please let us know if you are able to join us at the Ute Indian Museum, 17253 Chipeta Rd, Montrose, CO. This event is FREE and open to the public, so feel free to share with friends, family, and constituents, and on community calendars. We hope to see you there!
