Yakona means "rising water" in the language of the indigenous people of the San Marcos River in Texas. This film is a visual journey through the crystal clear waters of the San Marcos River and its headwaters at Spring Lake. The story takes the viewer from prehistoric times, through the modern era, on an impressionistic journey from the perspective of the river.

While filming, many extraordinary changes occurred surrounding the springs and river, including the removal of the Aquarena Springs theme park, the restoration of Spring Lake and the uncovering of ancient human remains.

We follow the river from source to sea, through the changing seasons, interpreting the river's time and memory and documenting this relationship between the natural world and man. Yakona speaks directly to the viewer with its beauty, appealing to humanity's higher nature, and the viewer begins to understand this is a river that yearns to remain unchanged despite everything that is changing around it. Special ticket pricing: $15 General Admission/$12 for Film Forum Members.

   The filmmaker and the composer will be present, with a free public reception at 6pm in the lobby. both nights. There will be a live score accompanying the screening, performed by local musicians.
