An Anthology of the Anthropocene.
WHEN OLD GROWTH ENDS
TONGASS FOREST / FILM & CAMPAIGN
Shot in 2016 at the frontline of the slaughter of the Tongass National Forest, When Old Growth Ends tells a love story through the eyes of the salmon, the old-growth trees, the indigenous peoples residing there, and a group of women with an affinity for wild places. The film illuminates how the failing timber industry and its government enablers have ruptured the heart of the Tongass, leaving the last remaining old-growth temperate rainforest in the nation vulnerable to complete unraveling. The message, spoken in whispers with deafening overtones, beckons us all to mobilize against old-growth logging in Alaska and beyond. The film and campaign, based on the tenets of deep ecology and biophilia, proposes that the defense and preservation of wildlife habitat and the world’s great carbon sinks is our primary task in the new millennium. The film premiered at South By Southwest (SXSW) in March 2018, and will continue on to other film festivals.
