Return of the River
Snowy Owl Theater @ Icicle Creek Center for the Arts - 7409 Icicle Road Leavenworth WA 98826
Followed by a Q-and-A with filmmaker Jessica Plumb!
"Return of the River" offers a story of hope and possibility amid grim environmental news. It is an invitation to consider crazy ideas that could transform the world for the better. It features an unlikely success story for environmental and cultural restoration.
Fundamentally, the Elwha River in Washington State is a story about people and the land they inhabit. The film captures the tenacity of individuals who would not give up on a river, mirroring the tenacity of salmon headed upstream to spawn. It is a narrative with global ramifications, exploring the complex relationship between communities and the environment that sustains them.
The camera soars over mountain headwaters, dives into schools of salmon, and captures turbines grinding to a halt; as the largest dam removal project in history begins. The film features people and perspectives on all sides of the Elwha debate, reflecting the many voices of the Elwha valley.
