Film: “Confluence: The River Heritage of St. Louis”

Free, all ages, 7 p.m., 314-454-3150, www.mohistory.org
Documentarian James F. Scott has made a film exploring our city’s relationship and development with regard to the Missouri and Mississippi rivers (remember them? Yeah, we really are built along rivers, even if we don’t act like it). Big-time Post-Dispatch reporter Bill Lambrecht, author of a new book on a similar theme, will be one of the panelists sticking around after the film to continue the discussion on the relevance of rivers to today’s civic and cultural life in St. Louis.
