Flussfilmfest — a traveling film festival showing on April 11 in Berlin — wants to use stories about rivers to figure out ways to save them. We talked to Tobias Schäfer, the initiator of the festival who works in the Berlin office of the Living Rivers Foundation, to learn more about the project.

“Science is clearly telling us that we’re in trouble, so we want to discuss where we are and we want to discuss the options that we have,” Schäfer said.

Flussfilmfest will host an evening of films and a discussion tonight at Langbrett in Prenzlauer Berg.
