We all seek to venture out to nature But, imagine all you’ve know is streets. Imagine that as a result, you’re afraid of nature….as an unknown. Imagine a mentor takes you to the river for the first time, and hikes along the river, and your eyes open…. That’s what Alisha Camacho is doing with her students in Anacostia and she’s producing a documentary about it, called “Anacostia Unplugged,” in this great interview from our archives.
Alisha Camacho produced a free, online documentary series about how going outside is saving lives, preserving the environment, and empowering communities along the Anacostia River. Alisha, one of GCM’s videographers, explains more about her project and the inspiration in the interview with Joan.
The documentary series will follow the lives of individuals living along the Anacostia River, and show their journey as they reconnect with the natural environment along this historically neglected and polluted Watershed.
