A free public film-screening of Patagonia’s new film, Blue Heart, hosted by the University of Portsmouth.

About this Event:
More than 3,000 hydropower dams and diversions are either proposed or in the process of being built on Europe’s last wild rivers in the Balkans and will cause irreversible damage to rivers, wildlife and local communities. Blue Heart documents the battle for the largest undammed river in Europe—Albania’s Vjosa—the effort to save the endangered Balkan lynx in Macedonia, and the women of Kruščica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, who are spearheading a months-long, 24/7 protest to protect their community’s only source of fresh water.The film is directed by San Francisco-based filmmaker and photographer Britt Caillouette.
