BendFilm invites all curious and eco-conscious audiences to a screening of ArtiFISHAal, a Patagonia film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. ArtiFISHal by Josh “Bones” Murphy explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature. The eye-opening documentary explores issues uniquely relevant to the Pacific Northwest.
A post-film panel discussion will dive into the issues explored in the film, the dire implications for Oregon fisheries, ways to get involved and what local organizations are doing to protect our delicate ecosystem. Panelists include: Tom Derr, Native Fish Society River Steward for Molalla River; Tod Heisler, River Conservation Director for Central Oregon LandWatch; Erik Fernandez, Wilderness Program Manager for Oregon Wild; Kyle Smith, Oregon Field Coordinator for Trout Unlimited; and Lisa Seales, Vice President of the Board of Directors for The Environmental Center.
