River As Spirit – Rebirth of the Elwha
This film is a meditation on the soul of the Elwha River and the people and salmon who have been a part of it for thousands of years. Just before the historic dam removal work officially began; filmmakers flew and filmed the length of the river, from its source high in the Olympic Mountains to the mouth at the Strait of Juan De Fuca in slow motion and with the high end Cineflex 600K camera.
