Film Premiere: Culture of the Irrigated West 

When: Wed., Oct. 21, 6 p.m. 2015
Price: FREE
Learn about the culture that arose in southern Idaho in response to large-scale, federally funded irrigation projects at the turn of the 20th century. The documentary combines historical information and photographs, current videography, original poetry and music to evoke a sense of what life was like 100 years ago as the high desert was transformed into arable land. A discussion will follow with collaborators Jamie Armstrong and Lee Ann Tysseling from Boise State, and Peter Lutze from Valparaiso University. Light refreshments will be served.
