Interview with Filmmaker Travis Rummel

June 20, 2014 By: Erin Block

Filmmaker Travis Rummel of Felt Soul Media sits down with Brendan Leonard on Adventure Journal to talk about his critically acclaimed documentary “DamNation.”  “Our hope with DamNation is to get folks to begin thinking about dams and rivers in a critical way,” says Rummel. “Dams are constructed things that have a limited life span. They will all have to come out or be replaced at some point. Thousands, if not tens of thousands, of dams have already outlived their life span and have been abandoned.” The goal of the film, he explains, is to crack down on these “deadbeat dams.”
