SPOIL

DIRECTOR: TRIP JENNINGS - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) SPOIL follows the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and the Gitga’at First Nation people of British Columbia in their search for the elusive spirit bear. All white but not albino and rarer than the panda, the spirit bear lives only in the Great Bear Rainforest on the north coast of British Columbia, a place at risk from a proposed oil pipeline. In an effort to oppose the pipeline, the ILCP’s mission is to create images of this rare bear and the unique ecosystem that it relies on. (44 mins.)

FILM REVIEW

FOLLOWED BY

SAVING PELICAN 895
DIRECTOR: IRENE TAYLOR BRODSKY / PORTLAND, OR
(DOC) Brodsky’s new film tells the gripping story of the rescue of pelican “LA 895”—one of the oiled bird victims of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill—by the Fort Jackson Oiled Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Louisiana. Neither a story that compounds the horrors we already know about our nation’s worst oil disaster nor a treatise on oil production or consumption, SAVING PELICAN 895 is the tale of a single animal and the compassionate people deployed to save him, showing how the process of saving one life restored a degree of humanity for the rest of us. (40 mins.)

Whitsell Auditorium     84 Minutes    

Interests: Documentary.
