I believe my footage should explore the role of humans in our environment.

How far are we willing to go to ensure water for our homes? What does that mean for my children? What would happen if we brought down all the dams in a country?

The U.S. alone has nearly 8100 "large dams." Nearly every once "wild river" in the world has been dammed.

How many fish would then swim free, and how much nutrient rich sediment would reach our deltas once again?

Redding, CA is a city of 100,000 lays calmly along the Sacramento river, just South of the mystical 14,000 ft Mt Shasta. Its natural beauty and rich cultural tradition are best captured through its juxtaposition with Shasta Dam. In post-depression years, it provided jobs and hydroelectricity to California, and it fed those by providing water to agricultural lands in So. Cal. When completed in 1946 it was the second largest dam, behind Hoover, in the United States. Should the dam come down today, though? Some are advocating for it to be raised to increase its capacity instead. This has been met with fierce opposition.

To do so it has effectively destroyed sacred Native American Wintu Lands and sacred sites, decreased the Salmon and Steelhead runs in N. California, and increased the temperature of the Sacramento River. Further, it has indirectly increased the establishment of cities and farms in once wild forests and floodplains.

Anyone in N. California or S. Oregon can join me for a day of filming the dam and its effects on N. California, an attempt to expose (not advocate one way or the other) the issues with development in once wild river floodplains and culturally sacred lands. Fisherpersons, families and laborers comprise some of the pertinent stakeholders I hope to catch tomorrow on film.

I'm going to the mountains in Shenandoah River Forest (Virginia, USA). Should be able to get something good!

I was going to "document my city" but as I am going to sweden in the middle of a forest "nature" seems to be the way to go. I have no idea what it'll be yet, because I've never been there before.
