Each of us is connected to rivers in our everyday lives. Most of the six million people living in the Potomac River watershed do not realize that their drinking water comes from the Potomac. Since the Clean Water Act passed in 1972, the health of the river has improved. However, it is still in trouble and faces a number of serious threats: urban development, population growth and runoff from farms, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. The film follows the flow of the Potomac water from its origin, into our homes and businesses and back into the river.

Co- Directed, produced and written by Peggy Fleming and Sean Furmage

Crown Me!

Washington Post Feature Story

Staff Writer, May 5, 2010

“In Crown Me! Peggy Fleming does a Zora Neale Hurston, capturing folklore. It’s street anthropology, a study of a people and their wisdom, documenting intelligence not determined by a degree, showing that a janitor can step toe-to-toe with a chemist.”
