Felt Soul Documents Bristol Bay Controversy

Travis Rummel and Ben Knight recently wrapped up 60 days of couch surfing and bushwhacking to begin several months of editing on their upcoming film on the impact of the proposed Alaskan Bristol Bay mine project. “Starting in June, the two and their project coordinator, Trout Unlimited’s Lauren Oakes, camped at the Peter Pan salmon cannery in Dillingham and in villagers’ houses. They spent days with fishermen — in their boats and homes. They floated next to belugas feeding on salmon near Nushagak Point, and two months later, hundreds of miles upstream, they stared down in amazement at tens of thousands of spawning sockeye.” Elizabeth Bluemink in the Anchorage Daily News.
