The screening of 'Red Gold' has ended for the night. To purchase the film for $25, go here. Return to this same site next week to watch Samsara, Jimmy Chin, Renan Oztruk, and Conrad Anker's film about their epic ascent of Meru, a 21,000-foot rock fin in India's Himalaya. 

To get ready for this year's Mountainfilm in Telluride, we'll be playing a Mountainfilm documentary every Thursday in May. Join us on this page on May 17 at any time between 6 and 9 p.m. MST to watch Red Gold, Felt Soul Media’s groundbreaking, award-winning documentary about the fight to save Bristol Bay, Alaska’s salmon from an open-pit mine. 

Starting at 7 p.m. MST click here to join a discussion about mining and the future of Alaskan salmon with filmmakers Travis Rummel and Ben Knight, along with local boat captain Tim Bristol, Outside correspondent Tim Sohn, scientist Sarah O'Neal, and Alaska Native activist Melanie Brown. The director of Mountainfilm in Telluride, David Holbrooke, will moderate the Q&A. 

Film Synopsis
The controversy started after open-pit mine capable of producing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gold, copper, and something called molybdenum was proposed on the headwaters of two of Alaska’s richest salmon rivers. For 70 days, filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel documented the community of Bristol Bay, Alaska’s fight over the mine. The resulting 55-minute film, Red Gold, won the Audience Choice award at Banff Mountain Film Festival, an award for Cinamatic Excellence at the Newburyport Film Festival, Best Environmental Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival, and the Audience Choice and Director’s Choice at Mountainfilm in Telluride.

For more on Bristol Bay and the fiercest battle over wilderness and resources since ANWAR, read Tim Sohn’s article Gold Fish.
