Documentary "Patagonia Rising" to Premiere Thursday in Silver City

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.

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...
