COME HELL OR HIGH WATER: THE BATTLE FOR TURKEY CREEK - Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital
4:30 p.m.

Carnegie Institution for Science

COME HELL OR HIGH WATER: THE BATTLE FOR TURKEY CREEK (USA, 2013, 60 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere Follow the painful, inspiring journey of Derrick Evans, a Boston teacher who moves home to the Mississippi Gulf Coast community of Turkey Creek, first settled by former slaves, when the graves of his ancestors are bulldozed to make way for the sprawling city of Gulfport. Over the course of a decade, Evans and his neighbors stand up to powerful corporate interests and politicians and face ordeals that include Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil disaster in their struggle for self-determination and environmental justice. They build powerful alliances to fight urban sprawl and industrial contamination  to protect the culture and natural environment that sustained eight generations. Directed and produced by Leah Mahan.

Panel discussion, moderated by Brentin Mock, writer for Grist, with filmmaker Leah Mahan, Derrick Evans, Leslie Fields, Sierra Club National Environmental Justice Director, and Reilly Morse, President and CEO, Mississippi Center for Justice, follows screening.

FREE. Reservations required.
