"Live" Virtual Screening on Thursday, August 6th at 8pm EST “at” Coolidge Corner Theater. Join filmmaker Mark Titus and special guests in a crucial Livestream interactive event.
An urgent threat emerges to spur filmmaker Mark Titus (The Breach) back to the Alaskan wilderness—where the people of Bristol Bay and the world's largest wild salmon run face devastation if Pebble Mine, a massive gold and copper mine is constructed. By suddenly dismantling safeguards the EPA had enacted to protect the salmon, water, and people of Bristol Bay, the current political regime in the United States has unilaterally revived a mining corporation's relentless pursuit of receiving a permit in 2020 to build North America's largest open-pit copper mine—directly in the headwaters of the most prodigious wild sockeye salmon run in the world.
The Wild is a race against time. At stake is the survival of a keystone species that feeds 137 different creatures—including us—in a wild place that is the last of its kind on Earth. 46% of the world’s sockeye salmon come from the pristine waters of Bristol Bay, Alaska. If this mine is approved, the salmon run could be gone…forever.
Featuring the vibrant characters from Bristol Bay; Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard; Seattle Chef Tom Douglas; Celebrity chef Tom Colicchio; Yupik artist Apayu'q Moore; Actor Mark Harmon; Actor and activist Adrian Grenier; and many more.
Tickets can be found online, with 25% of the price going back to the non-profit coalition protecting Bristol Bay.
