The Texas Tribune, the Paramount Theatre and the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation present the regional premiere of Watershed, the story of the threats to the Colorado River, followed by a panel of international experts discussing water shortage and drought issues in river basins in Texas and around the world.

The event will begin with a reception featuring live music at 6 p.m. and the screening of Watershed (57 minutes) at 7 p.m., followed by a panel discussion moderated by Tribune reporter Neena SatijaWatershed is executive produced and narrated by Robert Redford and directed by award-winning filmmaker Mark Decena. It tells the story of the threats to the once-mighty Colorado River and offers solutions for the future of the American West. As the most dammed, dibbed and diverted river in the world struggles to support 30 million people and the peace-keeping agreement known as the Colorado River Pact reaches its limits, Watershed introduces hope.

Ensuring sufficient clean water for a growing population and economy is the most significant and urgent concern facing Texas. Yet according to the 2012 State Water Plan, in serious drought conditions, Texas does not and will not have enough water to meet the needs of its people, its businesses and its agricultural enterprises.
