Stop the Hwy 55 Reroute Documentary
March 19, 2009
Between August 1998 and December 1999, community and environmental activists tried to stop the reroute of Highway 55 in south Minneapolis in order to protect Coldwater Spring, a sacred water source, and oak trees that stood on parkland. Stop the Re-Route: Taking a Stand on Sacred Land is a documentary film about those events. It screens March 21 as the only local film in the Walker Art Center's Women with Vision Film Festival. KFAI's Lydia Howell reports.
