Slow Food London is sponsoring the film Red Gold.
Come and hear about the unique mix of UK and US Jewellers, and Sport and Commercial Fishermen who support protection of the world’s largest salmon fishery where tens of millions of trophy-size salmon spawn each year.
The Bristol Bay region of South-west Alsaka is home to the Kvichak and Nushagak rivers, the two most prolific sockeye salmon runs left in the world, the last great wild salmon fishery in the world. A controversial copper and gold mine is proposed at the headwaters of these two rivers.
The film Red Gold tells a story of remote Native American sustenance-users, Alaskan commercial fisherman, sport fisherman and residence that all share the commonality of salmon fishing at the core of their existence. For the first time, all user groups have come together in opposition of the Pebble Mine development — the story at the heart of this film
Drinks reception with Alaska Native Leaders and Fishermen after the film.
