Changing Course is Possible
Trailer (Audio:: English, no subtitles)
"Return of the River" offers a story of hope and possibility amid grim environmental news. It is a film for our time: an invitation to consider crazy ideas that could transform the world for the better. It features an unlikely success story for environmental and cultural restoration.
With its stunning photography, in-depth historical background, and deeply-imbued tribal perspective, "Return of the River" is the documentary film that lives up to the grandeur of the Elwha, its renewal, and its promise. – Lynda V. Mapes, Seattle Times
Return of the River vividly portrays the epic story of the freeing of Olympic National Park's mighty Elwha River from two salmon-blocking dams. The Elwha Klallam people, scientists, fishermen, politicians, enviros, and townsfolk all add their voices to a film that is visually dazzling, lyrically evocative, and fluid as mountain snowmelt. – Tim McNulty, author
