Pete McBride has had an invigorating last few months. He’s been on the road with his film, “Delta Dawn,” about his journey down the Colorado River, and seeing its waters meet the ocean for the first time in decades. McBride’s film has garnered several awards. He talks with Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher about the feedback he’s gotten from moviegoers and film festivals.

The Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is holding its first-ever film festival on Wednesday. The thirteen films featured are meant to connect people with their environment and inspire advocacy. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.

“River of Eden” is one of the films in the festival. Basalt-based photographer Pete McBride traveled to Fiji for the film.

Last month the Colorado River met the sea for the first time in about two decades thanks to what’s called a “pulse flow.” Local photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride was there to see it. He was taking photos for an upcoming article in Outside Magazine. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen spoke with him this week, about the experience.
