Grab your ORCA card and get down to 1st and Lenora by 7 pm, because standing and watching a film isn’t nearly as fun as sitting. Although eating Bear Naked Parfaits is enjoyable in any position.
What Adventure Films.com is saying about Red Gold:
The Bristol Bay region of southwest Alaska is home to the Kvichak and Nushagak rivers – the two most prolific sockeye salmon runs left in the world. Two mining companies, Northern Dynasty Minerals and Anglo American, have proposed an open-pit and underground mine at the rivers’ headwaters. The area holds the second largest deposit of copper, gold and molybdenum ever discovered, with an estimated value of more than $300 billion. 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 gives a face to the issue and a voice to the people of Bristol Bay who depend on this extraordinary fishery.
