A local chef will prepare some wild Bristol Bay salmon for you to enjoy after a screening of the award-winning documentary, Red Gold, followed by Q&A with representatives from the national Save Bristol Bay campaign.
Alaska's last great salmon fishery is in peril. Come see the award-winning film, Red Gold, that started the national campaign to protect it.
The Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska is home to the most prolific sockeye salmon run in the world. However, with international mining companies proposing a massive open-pit gold mine at the headwaters of the Bristol Bay watershed, this salmon run is in peril. Red Gold shows what's at stake; the livelihood of over 4,000 commercial fishermen, a world-renowned sport fishery, and the subsistence culture of Bristol Bay communities. Despite promises of a clean project by mining officials, the accident-plagued history of hard rock mining has wrought one of the biggest land use issues Alaska has ever faced. Red Gold examines this issue through the stories of the people of Bristol Bay who depend on this extraordinary fishery. The film gives stunning insight into a truly wild and beautiful place, and a fishing culture that won't go down without a fight.
