The Dammed

This evening at 7 p.m., the Environmental Film Festival uses the National Museum of the American Indian’s Rasmuson Theater (Fourth Street and Independence Avenue Southwest) to present a screening of J. Carlos Peinado’s “Waterbuster,” a film chronicling the events following the construction of North Dakota’s Garrison Dam in the 1950s. For the filmmaker, a Mandan and Hidatsa Indian, the project was a personal one; his family was among those displaced by the dam’s all-engulfing waters. Mr. Peinado will be on hand tonight to discuss his work at this free event; seats will be given on a first-come, first-served basis 10 minutes before showtime. For details, log onto www.nativenetworks.si.edu or call 202/633-1000.
