Rivers of Justice Film Festival

Officials from World Fare have announced the Rivers of Justice Film Festival will take place April 4 and 5 in downtown Three Rivers.

Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma  said the festival includes three feature-length films at the Riviera Theatre. Banana Land, playing April 4, explores issues of worker and environmental justice in banana-growing regions.

On April 5, The House I Live In will invite viewers to consider the effectiveness of the war on drugs, while If You Build It will tell the story of an innovative building and design program at a rural high school.

World Fare will host a community potluck dinner April 4 to coincide with the start of the two-day event.

Tickets, available online and at the Riviera, are $5 per film or $10 for the three-movie package.
