The River Is Me
David Freid, Emmy Gyori | 2018 | 17 min
For many years, this river's ownership was under dispute. Now, it owns itself. In what is believed to be a world's first, the Whanganui River has been granted legal personhood, with the same rights and responsibilities as you and me. But determining where a river ends and the rest of nature begins - that may be up for some debate.

Rock-Paper-Fish
Connor Gallagher, Colin Arisman, Wild Confluence, Nomad Island | 2019 | 26 min
Every year, all five species of salmon return to the Chilkat River and sustain the communities of Haines and Klukwan, but now a modern day gold rush is underway in the mountains above the river's headwaters. Rock-Paper-Fish offers a vivid look into the lives of Alaskans grappling with questions as immense as the place they call home.

Dammed to Extinction
Michael Peterson, Steven Hawley | 2019 | 51 min
For eons, salmon-eating killer whales have hunted Chinook along the Pacific Coast. Since 1976, renowned whale scientist Ken Balcomb has closely observed them. He's familiar with a deadly pattern: as salmon numbers plummet, these whales starve. His solution: getting rid of four dams on a key tributary of what once was the largest Chinook producing river on earth.
