There are over 75k dams in the U.S. the majority of which are obsolete, unsafe, and costing taxpayers millions every year. Introducing DamNation, the first feature-length documentary from Patagonia examining the U.S. shift in attitude about big dams from initial pride to growing critical awareness in the environmental and fiscal concerns they raise. http://www.damnationfilm.com/. @SXSW @patagonia @mattstoecker #DamNationFilm #DeadbeatDams #FreeTheRivers

I can not wait to view this film. #damnation #damnationfilm #patagonia #bringthemdown #hasmysupport #givetheriversback
#DamNationFilm premiered today at @sxsw. The documentary explores the movement to remove some of the 75k dams in the US. Many of these dams, like the Matilija Dam featured in the photo disrupt sand, soil and nutrient flow, degrade water quality and no longer produce any hydroelectric power. Its time for them to come down. Imagine how many point breaks would be created or improved if we were able to #FreeTheRivers.

A dead beat dam on Bridge Creek, a tributary to the upper Middle Fork of the John Day River. Bridge Creek is critical habitat for summer steelhead (endangered), spring Chinook, and bull trout (endangered). This is also the site for one of Oregon's newer state parks; Bates state park. The parks department decided to keep the dam as a significant feature in spite of the #streamrestoration opportunities. The State and Feds failed to speak for the fish. #growapair Working to take this one out and complete the needed restoration to allow all species access to the cold water and habitat they deserve. #DamNationFilm Attendance at the park is low. Go figure.

alexandrafuller : Props @travisrummel!
jessiturner : Can't wait to watch this! @goshrant @rgratias

Folks in Austin learning about the need for U.S. dam removal. Our doc #DamNationFilm premieres at @SXSW today! Text 'dam' to 91990 & call on @BarackObama to crack down on #DeadbeatDams.
lena_danko : @The_eaze please stop commenting on every picture they've uploaded on the topic, 1)you're being a downer. 2)they have lots of reasoning behind what they are doing 3)Yvon never got into making clothing to please the masses, he stands up for what he believes in and will continue to do that. Watch the movie and if you disagree than don't buy the products it's simple, don't tell an amazing brand they are doing something wrong by trying to help save a messed up planet.
xtinafrohlich : No more patagucci for me. I can't afford your political rhetoric because it comes at the high price of swaying the masses minds against dams without a viable alternative to a necessary source of energy.
jacobruth99 : Ummm... Monkey Wrench Gang?
azlengua : @the_eaze great response. Guess it's another brand for you buddy. #elementary
calebscansen : Soo... The fish are more important than food... Ok. I'll stick to other brands that actually use their brains before getting sucked into an emotionally charged issue. Without dams there is major lack of power, causing skyrocketing energy prices. If you haven't been paying attention, life is already expensive. Without dams there is a lot less water to water food for the country. Look at the dust bowl. Without food for the country what happens to the price of food? How about availability? Guess fish are more important. I guess if you take the dams, we'll have to start using more nuclear power. Or natural resources. There is not a viable energy option. You argue Ethanol? Ethanol requires large crops to ferment. What do crops require? Water. See how this works?
tyronie : @calebscansen #nooclue
mattwdaniel : you should see 180 degrees south!
calebscansen : @tyronie great argument!
