The Wild

Director: Mark Titus

Sequel to The Breach screened at FHFF in 2015

For millennia, wild salmon have survived ice ages, continental shifts, and most destructively, human beings.  The fact that these fish, one of the planet’s most critical food sources, continue to exist has led to the widespread belief that they are safe from extinction. 

However, fisherman/filmmaker Mark Titus is not so confident. He set out to document the urgent threat facing the wild salmon runs in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, where there are plans to construct a massive open-pit copper mine in the headwaters of the most prodigious wild sockeye salmon run in the world.

This conflict in Alaska could become a harbinger to a larger, global question:  How do we reconcile human separation from the natural world that sustains us – and if we can change course — how do we save what remains?  Picking up where The Breach (screened at FHFF in 2015) left off, The Wild is an urgent call to action, examining what it means to save what we love.
