Series: Green City Week

At the headwaters of the Kvichak and Nushagak rivers in Bristol Bay, Alaska — the two largest remaining sockeye salmon runs on the planet — mining companies have proposed to extract what may be the richest deposit of gold and copper in the world. This multi-award-winning film documents the growing unrest among native, commercial, and sport fishermen who oppose the proposed Pebble Mine, as well as giving mine officials a chance to argue their case.

Red Gold is a portrait of a unique way of life that would not exist if the salmon didn't return with Bristol Bay's tide.

There will be a discussion of the film immediately following.

This event is open to students and staff of City University London and to the local community.  Registration required.
