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

Brilliant documentary
25 January 2015 | by barbgSee all my reviews

I am not generally a fan of environmental documentaries; many make a case by documenting often horrifying facts with no intent beyond good journalism or advocacy. As effective as this can be (e.g. Gasland), it's not art. The Breach is an exception; it's excellent storytelling that portrays the mutually beneficial relationship between salmon and humans, and leads us gradually to an implied call to arms. While I had some familiarity with a few of the issues involving salmon survival (dams, fish farms, fish ladders), The Breach clearly brought the impact to life, and I learned things I hadn't known before. I think the film succeeds with the gimmick of telling the story from the salmon's point of view. In any case, the cinematography is gorgeous, and The Breach demonstrates the critical importance of saving one of the last bodies of water where salmon and other wildlife can still thrive.
