SILVER CITY - The documentary "Patagonia Rising," which talks about a controversial proposal to construct a major hydroelectric dam in the Patagonia region of Chile, will be shown Thursday night at the Silco Theater.
The New Mexico premiere of the one-hour film documentary will feature Jonathan Leidich, field producer of the film and leading opponent of the dams, as a guest speaker. Leidich, owner and outfitter of Patagonia Adventure Expeditions in Chile, was responsible for the field logistics associated with both the "Patagonia Rising" documentary and "Power in the Pristine," a shorter companion film to be featured Sept. 17 at the Gila River Festival...
