Pete McBride has had an invigorating last few months. He’s been on the road with his film, “Delta Dawn,” about his journey down the Colorado River, and seeing its waters meet the ocean for the first time in decades. McBride’s film has garnered several awards. He talks with Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher about the feedback he’s gotten from moviegoers and film festivals.


“Delta Dawn” will be showing at the 5 Point Film Festival in Carbondale tonight. On Sunday, the festival will also feature two notably accomplished rock climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Lynn Hill.
