Shane Anderson directed and produced A River’s Last Chance. He will personally be presenting the Director’s cut of the film. The Eel River in Northern California is arguably the best opportunity for wild salmon recovery on the entire west coast. The river and salmon have weathered decades of over fishing, abusive logging, catastrophic floods and droughts, as well as a hydro power dam that diverts water out of the basin.
Today, the wild salmon recovering in the Eel river, compete for water with the region’s cannabis & wine industries. This film is rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds while maintaining healthy rivers and a strong economic future.
