A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.
Tonight you can see a special short preview of Yakona, an independent documentary film that takes the viewpoint of the San Marcos River. Home to eight federally listed endangered species and a rare species of wild rice, the river has also provided countless hours of tubing fun, birding and much quiet contemplation. No one who lives here has not fallen in love with the spring fed river and its cool beauty. The film makers, Paul Collins and Anlo Sepulveda, hope to garner enough funds to finish the film in time for the Sundance Independent Film Festival. We are sure just a few moments into watching the film you will want to contribute and be a part of this cinematic love letter to one of the oldest inhabited areas (thanks to the river) in North America.

Yakona a visual journey from prehistoric times through the present day from the perspective of the San Marcos River.
Yakona is a documentary about one of the most unique and beautiful spring-fed rivers in the world. Home to eight endangered species, the San Marcos River is considered among the oldest continually inhabited areas in North America. Yakona, meaning “rising water” in a local Native American language, is a visual journey through the crystal clear waters of the San Marcos River and its headwaters at Spring Lake.
We follow the river from source to sea, through the changing seasons, interpreting the river’s time and memory, and documenting this relationship between the natural world and man. Yakona speaks directly to the viewer with its beauty, appealing to humanity’s higher nature, and the viewer begins to understand this is a river that yearns to remain unchanged despite everything that is changing around it.
This is the last event that we are hosting for our fundraising campaign. We are showing a 20 minute version of the movie but there will be limited seating. Free, but we hope you will be inspired to spread the word even more vigorously this last week of our IndieGoGo campaign. ww.facebook.com/#!/Yakona
