Sustainable Waterfronts will show two short films on DC Waterfronts at 7:00pm at Hill Center:

On the Waterfront with Arthur Cotton Moore.  This film highlights the work that Moore did in the 1960s and 1970s to rescue the Georgetown Waterfront from the stinky slum that it had become.  Arthur Cotton Moore is a world-acclaimed architect for recently refurbished the interior of the Library of Congress.

Capitol Hill and Waterfront: A Bridge Across History.  This new film was made with grant support from the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.  It traces the historic relationship of the Southeast waterfront with the Capitol Hill community since the Capital was founded in 1791.

Sustainable Waterfronts is a 5013c foundation that focuses on the historic development of parks and rivers in the District of Columbia and beyond. Its mission is to help preserve the heritage of the city by producing educational films which can be distributed for free to community groups and public schools in the District.  Washington is currently in the throes of great economic changes and social development.  By offering a historical documentary on a vital part of our capitol, Sustainable Waterfront hopes to preserve a visual memory of a past that is slowly disappearing.
