ABOUT THE FILM    The Colorado, featuring stunning visuals set to music by today’s leading composers and narrated by the stage legend Mark Rylance, takes us on a journey in nine chapters through the prehistoric settlements of the Colorado River Basin, the period of European exploration, the dam-building era, modern industrial agriculture and immigration, and the impact of climate change. It is scored by John Luther Adams, William Brittelle, Glenn Kotche, Shara Nova, Paola Prestini and performed by the Grammy-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, cellist Jeffrey Zeigler (Kronos Quartet), and composer-percussionist Glenn Kotche (Wilco).

The creators of Compostable Concerts are grateful to live, work, and play in Kitchener-Waterloo, which is situated on the Haldimand tract. This land was promised to the Haudenosaunee people and is the ancestral land of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee of Six Nations Confederacy, Neutral/Attawandaron, and any other nations who have cared for the land, recorded or unrecorded. 

We also acknowledge all other caretakers of the land: the worms that turn the soil, the bees that pollinate the flowers, the trees that protect against erosion and filter our water, and we believe that the privilege of calling this land home comes with a great responsibility to care for it, and to leave it better than we found it.
