local sightings: River Ways
Tuesday, Oct 6, 7pm
River Ways
(Colin Stryker, USA, 2007, 85min.)
River Ways explores the lives of regular working people affected by the issue of whether to remove four dams on the Snake River in Eastern Washington. Environmental groups and fishing interests criticize the dams for their negative impact on salmon populations, but agricultural communities dependent on the dams oppose efforts to remove them. Combining interviews with careful everyday observation, and set against the scenic backdrop of the Pacific Northwest, River Ways introduces us to a set of characters with a surprisingly complex mix of perspectives. Frank Sutterlict, a Native American fisherman living in an encampment on the Columbia River, struggles to make ends meet in the face of dwindling salmon numbers; Ben Barstow, a family farmer in Washington, fears the effect of dam removal on his already marginal business; and Mark Ihander, a commercial fisherman, hangs on to an industry in economic decline. What emerges is a complex portrait of an issue that reaches to the heart of the ideological differences that characterize and divide the Pacific Northwest, and indeed many environmental issues throughout the world.
