On Saturday March 23 Sierra Quadra brings BC filmmaker Twyla Roscovich to Quadra for the island premiere of her latest film, Salmon Confidential. Twyla is a camera-toting environmentalist who documents the ecology of the BC coast – and is not afraid to get her feet wet!
Salmon Confidential follows the path of biologist Alexandra Morton as she unravels the mysteries of BC's declining salmon stocks using some of the world's top fish labs. What she uncovers should shock anyone who cares about wild salmon and the extensive food web they support. This 70 minute film documents the biologist's journey as she attempts to overcome government sanctioned roadblocks and get critical information about wild fish into public view.
This is a film about salmon, politics, science, and activism. Learn about BC’s changing coastal ecology, and the inner workings of government agencies responsible for overseeing fish stocks and the safety of our food supply.
Salmon Confidential is a film for all British Columbians and indeed, all Canadians. It is currently playing across the country to rave reviews. Join us on Saturday March 23 at the Quadra Community Centre as Twyla Roscovich presents her groundbreaking film. Doors open at 7 and the screening begins at 7:30. Admission is by donation; refreshments will be served.
