A documentary about the urgent threat that emerges to spur filmmaker Mark Titus ("The Breach") back to the Alaskan wilderness—where the people of Bristol Bay and the world's largest wild salmon runs face devastation if Pebble Mine, a massive copper mine, is constructed. The sudden dismantling of safeguards the EPA had enacted to protect the salmon, water, and people of Bristol Bay, a mining corporation's relentless pursuit of receiving a permit in 2020 to build North America's largest open-pit copper mine was revivied..
THE WILD is a race against time. At stake is the survival of a keystone species that feeds 137 different creatures—including us—in a wild place that is the last of its kind on Earth.
Featuring the vibrant characters from Bristol Bay; Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard; Seattle Chef Tom Douglas; Celebrity chef Tom Colicchio; Yupik artist Apayu'q Moore; Actor Mark Harmon; Actor and activist Adrian Grenier; and many more.
LIVE Virtual Screening Thursday, June 25th at 8pm MDT with filmmaker Mark Titus, climate-change artist Zaria Forman, wilderness photographer Drew Hamilton Photography, Founder of Soul River Inc. - Runs Wild Chad Brown and Senior Vice President of Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association Everette Anderson.
