The Breach

Win­ner of Best of Fest Selec­tion at 2015 Palm Springs Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val and Best Inter­na­tion­al Fea­ture Doc­u­men­tary at the 26th Gal­way Film Fleadh

The Breach (direct­ed by Mark Titus — 2015) explores the alarm­ing drop in the Pacif­ic Northwest’s wild salmon pop­u­la­tion. The film­mak­er, who is an Alaskan fish­ing guide, was deter­mined to dis­cov­er where the fish have gone and what might bring them back. As he embarked on his jour­ney of dis­cov­ery, he unrav­eled a trail of human hubris, his­tor­i­cal amne­sia and poten­tial tragedy – all con­spir­ing to end the most sus­tain­able wild food left on the plan­et. The Breach is the filmmaker’s first fea­ture doc­u­men­tary, and won Best Inter­na­tion­al Doc­u­men­tary in its first film fes­ti­val, the 2014 Gal­way Film Fleadh in Ire­land. It was also select­ed as one of ten Best of Fest films at its North Amer­i­can pre­miere at the Palm Springs Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val in Jan­u­ary 2015, as well as the Jame­son Dublin Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val in April 2015.
