SEACC's Award-Winning Film "Irreparable Harm"


From the Southeast Conservation Council:
SEACC’s award-winning short film, Irreparable Harm, is now available online! If you missed your chance to attend one of our many screenings, or just want to share it with a friend, now you can view the film HERE [or watch below].

The film is set on Admiralty Island in the small Tlingit community of Angoon, where people have looked to the bounty of the sea to support a subsistence way of life for thousands of years. You will hear from community members living there today who worry about the impacts of the mine on the marine life they rely on, and follow scientists from Southeast as they try and answer the question has the mine caused ‘irreparable harm’?

Over the past year, we have been traveling throughout Southeast Alaska showing Irreparable Harm to packed houses and talking with people about the potential impact of the Greens Creek Mine on nearby Hawk Inlet. The film has inspired people here in Alaska and throughout the States to take action, signing petitions and learning more about Hawk Inlet and the impact of mines on water quality. It also won Best Environmental Film at the Alaska International Film Awards andBest Short Film in the Yale Environmental Film Festival.

After you check out the film, be sure to sign our petition asking the Forest Service to repeat the original baseline study and make Hawk Inlet a living laboratory.
