California is in the midst of a historic drought; the most severe the region has had in the last 500 years. This water crisis has devastated resources, with several communities facing the prospect of running dry. A number of projects advocating infrastructure development such as the BDCP and Prop 1 have been proposed as solutions for the state, but are they truly in the interests of all? What are their impacts to our drying rivers and reservoirs? Fisheries and communities?

Drawing inspiration from struggles against large-scale infrastructure projects throughout MesoAmerica, the Beehive Collective will take you on a visual journey touching on the local and the global struggle for control and protection of water.

Tour in partnership with Javier Padilla Reyes from Restore the Delta.
