There are many untold stories about the connections of Lancaster's Black and Brown communities to local rivers and streams.
Telling those stories is the objective of "River Connections," a documentary being created by local filmmakers.
Heading the project are Marquis Lupton, founder and CEO of TCP Network; Mary Gattis, an environmental consultant; and Steve Garner, a board member at Creative Works.
On Friday, Lancaster Water Week will kick off with a celebration at Zoetropolis (112 N. Water St., Lancaster) featuring clips from "River Connections." The event also features music, food and drinks.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the performance begins at 6:30. As of Thursday, the event was at capacity, but a waitlist was available. To be added, click here.
"River Connections" is about raising the voices of Black and Brown people and celebrating connections to nature,” Gattis said.
The documentary is a work in progress; it's targeted for completion in September.
