ToDo ToDay: Environmental Film Fest, Porkstrami, and Wooden Wand

Rivers aren’t the hottest environmental topic out there, but they’re unavoidable for most urban dwellers. So give it up for the Environmental Film Festival’s decision to program a strong, uh, flow of river-oriented films this year. Beside the old reliables (Amazon, Mississippi), some other big shots (Rhine, Mekong, Ganges) will have their moments, too. And, of course, there are nods to the Anacostia and Potomac. If flowing water isn’t your thing, there’s the D.C. premiere of Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder (shown) and the world premiere of Hot Water, which is actually about uranium mining.
