As part of our unique collaboration with Vimeo, we curated a number of ecologically minded titles, including DamNation, in the Patagonia Collection on Vimeo On Demand.

    Surrounding the film’s appearances at festivals and other events around the country since March, we've asked people to get involved and ask President Obama to authorize studies on removing four problematic lower dams on the Snake River. To date, over 25,000 people have signed the petition asking the administration to “crack down on deadbeat dams” – signatures that will be delivered to the White House at a later date.
     
    Since its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March, DamNation has been hailed by The Los Angeles TimesThe Village VoiceNational Geographic and Time MagazinePatagonia founder Yvon Chouinard recently published an op-ed in The New York Times arguing for the removal of low value, high cost dams.
