ARTIFISHAL movie – Sept 30, 6pm – SOLD OUT!

Artifishal is a film about wild rivers and wild fish that explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. The film dives beneath the surface of the open-water fish farm controversy, as citizens work to stop the damage done to public waters and our remaining wild salmon.

Watch the trailer: ARTIFISHAL

OAEC’s WATER Institute is a long-time grant recipient of Patagonia for the unique value of our work to build watershed consciousness and promote creative solutions to restoring the Russian River basin and beyond. For the last decade, they’ve been primarily supporting our Bring Back the Beaver Campaign, acknowledging beaver as critical ally to restoring native salmon and riparian biodiversity across California. 
We’re also excited to show this film as our next door neighbor, Sashwa Burrows, was a principle cinematographer for the film. Sashwa and the filmmaker Josh Murphy will join us, and Josh will do a Q&A with the audience after the film. OAEC’s WATER Institute co-Director Brock Dolman will give a rousing introduction to the film, providing context and connections to the decades of Salmon restoration work here in the Russian River basin.
