Film Celebrates Salmon Way of Life, to be Shown One Night Only
“Red Gold,” a one-hour documentary film by acclaimed filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel about the proposed Pebble Mine in Southwest Alaska, will be presented at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 10 at Gonzaga University’s Cataldo Hall, Globe Room. It will be aired one time only on campus. Watch a trailer for the film or a slideshow.
A question-and-answer session designed to give fair voice to the disparate interests involved in the proposed mine – including mining interests and commercial, subsistence and sport anglers – will immediately follow the video. The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by Gonzaga’s Thematic Programming Committee.
The film has won many awards, including Audience Choice, Telluride Mountainfilm; Best of Festival, Ellensburg Film Festival; Cinematic Excellence, Newburyport Documentary Film Festival.
Audience members will have a chance to engage in the interactive discussion following the film with a panel comprised of the following people: Pebble Partnership CEO John Shively, Iliamna Development Corp.’s Lisa Reimers, Norman Van Vactor with Leader Creek Fisheries, and Washington Trout Unlimited Council President Mark Taylor.
Colorado filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel of Felt Soul Media spent more than two months in Bristol Bay filming Red Gold, their first full-length film. Previous short films include “The Hatch” and “Running Down the Man.” Read more about the filmmakers at www.feltsoulmedia.com.
