"Return of the River," Thurs., Oct. 11, 7:30 pm, Fort Worden Wheeler Theatre with Producer & Co-Director Jessica Plumb
When filmmaker Jessica Plumb first premiered "Return of the River" with Co-Director & Cinematographer John Gussman at the 2014 PTFF, the film earned our Audience Award for Best Documentary. The camera follows a group of strong-minded committed people as they attempt the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town, and eventually the nation, to bring a dam down. The community reaches a consensus to set the Elwha River free and shows us the way to more sustainable future. Amid grim environmental news, "Return of the River," is a film infused with hope.
Presented in partnership with Fort Worden, Goddard College, WWU's Academy for Lifelong Learning "Return of the River" screens Thurs., October 11, 7:30 at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of $10. Tickets available at the door. Q&A session with Jessica will follow the screening.
