Storyline

In creating The Breach I began to think of the symbiotic agreement Native Peoples had with salmon for millennia and how that has been compromised. There are hopeful restoration projects for repairing salmon runs - including the largest dam removal in US history on the Elwha River. But in thinking of what remains, my mind turned to Bristol Bay Alaska - where I'd spent those college summers 20 years before. Bristol Bay still has a perfect, healthy fishery, where 30-60 million wild salmon return each summer. They feed the land, animals and people of Bristol Bay, as they have for time immemorial. And they feed the world. Half the world's sockeye salmon supply comes from Bristol Bay. In the middle of all this, a Canadian mining company is attempting to construct North America's largest open-pit copper mine in the heart of Bristol Bay. I sought out tribal leaders, scientists, policy makers, fishermen, artists, authors and chefs - all with a shared knowledge and passion for wild salmon as ... Written by Mark Titus

The Breach is an important and enjoyable film with a message that's accessible for everyone. As we learn more about food - where it comes from, how it's harvested, who is harvesting it - this is a great start in terms of understanding the impacts of ocean-farm salmon fishing and mining in the interconnected waterways.

Mark Titus educates with a personal touch by including a terrific cast of characters who live this battle every day. The passion of the people in the film is enough to make even the most ardent naysayers take another look.

I've seen it twice and have been telling my friends to watch it. The time is now!
