When satirical writer and avid kayaker George Wolfe organizes a boating expedition down the entire 52 miles of the notorious Los Angeles River, he and his motley crew become entangled in a legal controversy of national proportions. With startling images of the LA River, insightful interviews and a quirky sense of humor, Rock the Boat looks at the challenges society faces in providing clean water to urban populations, and delivers a bright alternative to the current spate of doomsday docs.  Join the Environmental Law Center and Institute on the Environment and Sustainability for a screening of Rock the Boat, followed by a discussion with director Thea Mercouffer, kayaker George Wolfe, and Los Angeles River advocates and experts.  Free admission.
