“Damnation portrays the fictional “Monkey Wrench Gang” coming to life as we enter into the mindset of those who can no longer sit back and watch the planet and the rivers be destroyed.” – Huffington Post

“A highly entertaining investigation…” – ION Cinema

We are honored, humbled, and ecstatic after four wonderful screenings at SXSW last week.  We are also very proud to announce that we brought home the Audience Award for the Documentary Spotlight category!  We hope winning this award is a sign that the urgent issue of dam removal is resonating and will continue to build momentum as the film tours across the country.

Our Crack Down on Deadbeat Dams petition to President Obama continues to gain momentum. We’ve already gathered more than 6,000 signatures! Please sign the petition, if you haven’t already, and share it with your friends on social media.

Thank you for your continued support of DamNation and help spreading the message.  We cannot wait to screen it across the country over the next few months.  Check out an abridged screening schedule below, we will be launching a new damnationfilm.com next week with a full screening schedule.

See you on the road!

Matt, Ben, Travis, and Beda
