Award Winning Film ‘A River’s Last Chance’ Coming to Redwood Playhouse March 25
Award winning film “A Rivers Last Chance” coming to Redwood Playhouse in Garberville, March 25th, 3pm!
Join film contributor Michael Wier as he presents this beautifully crafted documentary that explores the legacy of salmon, timber, wine and weed along California’s Eel River while searching for an ecological and economic balance. This free lecture is brought to you by Lost Coast Interpretive Association, Caltrout, and Redwood Playhouse Presents. The movie will be followed by a question and answer period with Michael.
The Eel River and its watershed hold the key to the wild salmon recovery for the west coast. After weathering decades of overfishing, abusive logging, catastrophic floods, droughts and a hydropower dam diverting water with no fishway recovering wild salmon compete for water with the cannabis and wine industries of Sonoma, Mendocino, and Humboldt counties. This film is rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds and encourage both river recovery and an economic future.
In the words of the film’s creator Shane Anderson, “I started North Fork Studios in 2012 with a vision to use media as a tool to enact change in conservation of our fisheries and wild places. I’m combining my love for the outdoors with a love for visual storytelling and production. I finished my first documentary ‘Wild Reverence’ in 2013 and was accepted in several major film festivals. In 2016 my film ‘Behind the Emerald Curtain’ won 6 film festival awards. Now I’m back with my best project to date, ‘A River’s Last Chance’.”
