PORT TOWNSEND — The film “DamNation” will screen at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., at 7 p.m. Thursday.

The film will be followed with a question-and-answer session.

Tickets are on sale for $10, or $20 for both the film and the pre-film reception. They also will be available at the door.

“DamNation” explores the change in national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to concern for the health of rivers.

Featuring majestic cinematography and the return of wild waters to the West, the film carries viewers along rivers and through landscapes altered by dams and discovers a metamorphosis in values along the way.
