ABOUT THE FILM
Gold mining in the spawning grounds of the world’s most productive and well-managed wild salmon run might be an inherently bad idea, but this is exactly what Northern Dynasty Minerals has proposed: their Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay would be the largest in North America, covering an area bigger than Manhattan. Folk musician Luke Wallace travels to Dillingham, Alaska, to experience the sight and sound of 50 million salmon returning to spawn in this celebration of marine abundance, providing us with a powerful springboard for an action-oriented conversation on how to collectively protect wild salmon here in the Salish Sea.
Director Alex Harris & Producer Luke Wallace in attendance.
