MIIS Film Screening: Irreparable Harm
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 6:00pm
Middlebury Institute of International Studies presents a free screening of Irreparable Harm followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Connor Gallagher, on October 23, 6:30pm-8:30pm, at Irvine Auditorium in the McCone Building on the campus of MIIS.
The Tlingit people have called the vibrant coastline of Southeast Alaska home for over 10,000 years and continue to practice a way of life intimately tied to the ocean and the largest remaining temperate rainforest on earth. Now, contamination from industrial mining is threatening the safety of the wild food sources that make Alaska so unique.
Irreparable Harm gives powerful voices to the Alaska Native communities and conservation groups demanding that Greens Creek Mine and State and Federal agencies develop new monitoring and treatment of waste, and mitigate past damages before it’s too late.
Connor Gallagher is a freelance professional cinematographer and photographer based locally in Pacific Grove, CA. Connor has dedicated his career to protecting the natural world and has worked on documentaries for National Geographic, Mission Blue, Discovery, PBS, and Stanford University.
