A River's Last Chance documentary screening with local filmmaker Shane Anderson

Film, Green/Environmental, Benefit/Fundraiser
Please join us for our last theatrical showing of the award winning documentary " A River's Last Chance" in Olympia, Washington at the historic Capitol Theatre. There will be a discussion and Q and A with local filmmaker Shane Anderson. This show is a fundraiser for Pacific Rivers and proceeds will go to support the production of "Run Wild Run Free" 50 years of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. One of the most diverse rivers in the United States, the Eel, ran dry in 2014—for the first time in history. Once victimized by logging, damming, and drought, the Eel faced new challenges in the new century from some of California’s favorite commodities: wine and weed. This urgent and compelling documentary makes a renewed case for regulation and collaboration in protecting this vital resource. The story as told offers as many twists as the river itself (such as Ronald Reagan coming to the region’s rescue to prevent a dam from being built). The panoramic photography of devastation and re-growth is spellbinding. Historical footage and newspaper clippings testify to the generational cycles of damage and repair to the Eel. Just as the salmon, who at points lost 99% of their historical population, keep bouncing back, solutions keep emerging fresh from stakeholders who stubbornly back their optimism with action. A River’s Last Chance has premiered at 15 film festivals and won 3 awards. (dir. Shane Anderson, USA, 2017, 67 min.)
