The new one-hour documentary, The Ottaway – A river Reborn, explores the history and future of humanity’s relationship with the Boardman River. Through the hearts of minds of over 30 various stakeholders, a story unfolds about the challenges of turning back the hands of time by removing the three upper dams and modifying a fourth to once again connect the region’s major cold water river with the waters of Lake Michigan. This film weaves together Native American values, the complexity of a changing society, and the unspoken voices of nature’s population of “environmental citizens” whose lives are interwoven with… the rebirth of the Ottaway.
