Produced by TEDx Big Sky speakers Michael Peterson & Steven Hawley, Damned to Extinction is an award-winning documentary chronicling the trials and tribulations of a Pacific Ocean orca pod whose existence is threatened by a dwindling Chinook salmon population as a result of damming the Snake River.
$12 at the door. This screening is also a fundraiser for the Hood River Valley High School Theatre Department.
This award-winning documentary depicts the plight of a unique pod of killer whales that evolved in the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest to hunt chinook salmon. As salmon numbers have dwindled, ideas once considered off-limits, like removing dams, have become all the more palatable. Written, directed and produced by Gorge locals Michael Peterson and Steven Hawley, with original score by Hood River’s Duncan Krummel
