The Elwha Undammed: What’s a River For?

Jeff Gersh, David Fox, Diana Wilmar, Jan Mulder, Greg Bedinger | 2016 | 25 min.

2017 Official Selection

The Elwha River in Port Angeles, Washington is the stage for the largest dam removal in American history. A century ago, a businessman dammed the waters of the Klallam people where 100-pound salmon cast their shadows. Behind the dynamite and bulldozers that erased Thomas Aldwell’s dream is a saga of competing ideas about the purpose and meaning of a river.
