Salmon Stories December 9th noon at the Rose Theater in Port Townsend


We are showing 2 films on salmon recovery

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. The resulting footage stunning. Set to Native American music and narrated in the native Klallam language with English subtitles. Interviews with tribal members are also included.

Illahee – Saving Puget Sound One Watershed at a Time
This film is an inspirational story of a community’s effort (near Bremerton) to preserve and restore a forest, a salmon stream, and Puget Sound. Started modestly by forward-looking residents of the past, and carried on by succeeding generations, this extraordinary and sustained effort insures that Illahee’s natural treasures will be its legacy to the future of Puget Sound.
