ABOUT THE FILM

Salmon, as staple and icon, have always been central to life in the Pacific Northwest. Yet as human threats are putting our fragile give and take with this patron species at grave risk, Seattle filmmaker, and former fishing guide, Mark Titus journeys north to examine its history and present dangers: dams in Oregon and Washington, fish farms in BC, and giant-scale mining in Alaska. Mapping the impending disaster if we don’t protect the ecosystems in the world’s largest source of this miraculous species, he offers an inventive, visually delightful and clear-eyed overview of an essential issue.
