Remembering “Watershed” Filmmaker James Redford

Six weeks ago, filmmaker James Redford passed away from cancer at the age of 58. He came on Sea Change Radio as a guest in 2012 to discuss his documentary film Watershed which provides the story of the Colorado River through the voices of its beneficiaries, from a fly fisherman to a rancher to a Navajo council member. The film is narrated by Jamie’s father, actor Robert Redford, and this week on Sea Change Radio we remember James Redford, by revisiting our 2012 discussion. Jamie explains some of the water issues related to the Colorado River (many of which persist today) and how these lessons can help inform conservation efforts around the globe.
