Felt Soul Media burst onto the scene midway through the last decade with films that offered superior videography with critical environmental issues as the backdrop to thrilling fly fishing adventures.
Many would argue that their efforts in documenting the issues surrounding Pebble Mine and the Bristol Bay crisis were instrumental in promoting public awareness. Now, Felt Soul Media offers a new film with a new environmental issue with DamNation.
DamNation takes a deep look at an issue that not only impacts all anglers but all citizens: dammed rivers. According to filmmaker Ben Knight in the Felt Soul Media blog:
“DamNation is a collection of impassioned voices and spirited stories from the people entrenched on both sides of this divisive issue. Examining the history and controversy behind current and proposed dam removal projects, DamNation presents a dynamic perspective on Man’s attempt to harness and control the power of water at the expense of nature. Nothing lasts forever, not even the concrete monoliths that have impounded America’s free flowing rivers in the name of ‘progress’ for ages.”
The film is presented in part by Patagonia, a company, with founder Yvon Chouinard, that has been on the forefront of dam removal efforts in the Pacific Northwest United States and throughout the world, including critical areas such as Chile.
Anglers are already energized with the new news of this film and for good reason. To check out the film and to learn more about the issue, please click here.
