Movies that Matter Features Jill Heinerth Documentary, ‘We Are Water’

The Movies that Matter Series will feature We Are Water on May 21, 4:30pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim. The film screening is in collaboration with Celebrate Water Door County (CW).

The documentary film gives a first-hand look at the complexity of water below the surface, as Jill Heinerth, a renowned scuba diver and keynote speaker for the CW Summit, guides the viewer through various water environments.

Captain Jim Robinson will lead the discussion after the film. Robinson started scuba diving in 1966, prior to any standard certification agencies. In 1969 he did his first cave dive in one of the freshwater springs and caves in far north Florida and over the years self-trained himself and others in cave diving.

He is currently a full cave diver with the (NACD) National Association of Cave Diving and through the National Speleological Society / Cave Diving Section (NSS/CDS). He has received the Abe Davis Safety Award in cave diving from the NSS/CDS and he was the 58th person to receive the Wakulla Award in cave diving from the NACD. He is a Door County resident since 1976 and currently owns and operates Shoreline Scenic Cruises & Charters in Gills Rock.

The Great Lakes make up 84% of North America’s surface fresh water and about 21% of the world’s supply of surface fresh water.

The Great Lakes water system is the largest inland shipping system in the world.

The only Great Lake entirely within the U.S. is Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan’s shores hold the largest fresh water sand dunes in the world.

The Great Lakes were formed due to glacial movements that caused depressions in the earth that eventually filled with water.

Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are considered one lake hydrologically since they are connected by the Straits of Mackinac.

Although it falls under the category of what we define as a lake, Lake Superior acts more like an inland sea.

There are 9,000-year-old animal-herding structures below Lake Huron.

The Lake Huron shoreline extends 3,827 miles and encompasses 30,000 islands. It is the longest shoreline of the Great Lakes.

The water in Lake Erie is recycled every 2.6 years, the shortest of any Great Lake.
