WATERLIFE Director Kevin McMahon to speak at Centennial College

TORONTO, April 20 /CNW/ - The Centre for Creative Communications, Centennial College, is presenting an exclusive talk with celebrated Canadian filmmaker Kevin McMahon about WATERLIFE, a documentary about the last great supply of fresh drinking water left on Earth.

McMahon will be speaking at the college's East York campus on Saturday, April 24 at 12:30 pm as a part of Fast Forward 2010, a day of free talks, exhibits and workshops at Centennial's School of Communications, Media and Design.

WATERLIFE has already won numerous awards in Canada and around the world. It examines the story of the Great Lakes and our sustainable future. The source of drinking water, fish and emotional sustenance for 35 million people, the Great Lakes are under assault by toxins, sewage, invasive species, dropping water levels and profound apathy. Some scientists believe the Great Lakes are on the verge of ecological collapse.

"After 30 years of making documentaries, what now matters most to me is finding ways to depict the structures that form the environments we live within and which, thus, govern our lives," says McMahon. "But figuring out how to do that is not easy."

WATERLIFE is narrated by The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie and features music by Sam Roberts, Robbie Robertson and Brian Eno. Kevin McMahon's appearance at Centennial College is presented in association with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and Water Canada Magazine.

Fast Forward 2010 takes place between noon and 4 pm at Centennial's Centre for Creative Communications, 951 Carlaw Ave. at Mortimer, just east of Pape. For details, visit: www.centennialcollege.ca/thecentre/fastforward.
