Living with the Trinity 

6:00 PM – Reception & Check In
6:30 – Screening Begins
7:30 – Discussion with the filmmakers

The film Living with the Trinity is an incisive look at the history of the Trinity River and its relationship with the people who have settled along its banks. By diving into the past, this film is able to explain why the river remains a rather invisible resource despite the ambitious public works projects planned around it and the millions of Texans who rely on the body of water for life.
