The party celebrating the removal of the Elwha dams kicks off this week and while everyone's attention is focused on the what the future holds, here is a documentary that looks back at what it took to get where we are today.
Narrated by Gary Farmer and filmed in Washington State from 1993 to 1999, Unconquering the Last Frontier, explores the causes and effects of the ongoing salmon crisis in the Pacific Northwest, focusing on the Elwha River. The film was released in 2001/2 and has been honored by film festivals around the world. The film tells the story of the Lower Elwha Klallam tribes struggle to survive in the shadow of hydropower development.
This is the rarely screened 101 minute feature film version; it is a multi dimensional view of this landmark restoration effort and represents an important contribution to American documentary cinema.
