"Everybody Lives Downstream" examines the history of this city’s complicated relationship with the Buffalo River – the way we continue to alter this body of water through industrial exploitation as well as remediation and restoration efforts.

Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper combines firsthand knowledge of our waterways with an unwavering commitment to the rights of our communities to clean water. Their goal is for everyone to have access to fishable, swimmable and drinkable waterways throughout the Buffalo Niagara region.

Anna Scime is a Buffalo-based multimedia artist, primarily working in video and film. She is an MFA candidate and teacher in the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo.

This video was produced through Squeaky Wheel's Channels: Stories from the Niagara Frontier - an initiative that pairs local filmmakers with the region's activist groups to make short documentaries about issues impacting Buffalo + Western New York.
