We’ll post our May issue cover story on Mark Titus’ wild salmon documentary, The Breach, in the next week or so. But if you want to see the film on the West Coast, check out this information:
I’ve been on the road a while now and it will take some time to really process all of the powerful experiences from this national tour. The one constant throughout though are all the vibrant, passionate people I’ve met along the way across this country. Wild salmon and the ultimate sacrifice they make by giving up their lives for future generations seems to be a unifying language and this has been profoundly special to see. Thank you to all who have come out to see The Breach and support wild salmon on this #eatwildsavewildtour.
We’re in the home stretch now – and have the remainder of our west coast stops ahead. Please come out and join us for the film, great panels – and amazing wild Bristol Bay Sockeye dishes prepared by local chefs.
I’ll be sending out one last note with details before the tour ends, but I wanted to let you know about our very special homecoming screening coming up this Friday here in Seattle. The show will be at the gorgeous Seattle Art Museum this Friday at 7pm – doors open at 6:30. Enter on the first avenue entrance underneath the Hammering Man statue. Ticket price will include the screening, a special Q&A panel and a wild salmon reception featuring Bristol Bay wild salmon.
Immediately after the screening our VIP panel will include Bill Ruckelshaus – salmon champion and first head of the EPA, David R. Montgomery – author of King of Fish, chef Craig Hetherington of Taste Restaurant, Yupik subsistence fisherman Heidi Kritz from Dillingham Alaska and me.
A delicious wild salmon reception will follow the Q&A right outside the doors of the theatre, prepared by chef Craig Hetherington and his staff at Taste. Wine will be generously provided by Chris Sparkman of Sparkman Cellars.
