DIRECTOR MARK TITUS, “THE WILD”
The bid to save Bristol Bay, the world’s largest remaining natural salmon, from the “Pebble Mine” development became hotly debated in 2020, and is at the heart of The Wild, a visually-stunning film by Director Mark Titus. The film’s gorgeous cinematography stands as a testament to the value of the conservation effort the film, and Titus, champion. The film thoughtfully combines Bristol Bay’s peril with that of the filmmaker, who begins the film on his way to rehab, when he is called back to document the crisis at the center of this film. Titus sat down to talk with SDFF co-Director and Programmer Jean McGlothlin as a part of SDFF 2020’s Docs Make House Calls streaming festival Environmental Activism Film Slate, which ran from from July 21-Aug 9. It’s long-gone now, but you can watch the full interview (above)!
