Film Synopsis: This film explores the evolution of our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of wild rivers.
Director(s): Ben Knight / Travis Rummel
Since the earliest days of Felt Soul Media, cofounders Travis Rummel and Ben Knight have found success by taking on projects that they care deeply about. Oftentimes fly rods and extreme amounts of patience have been involved. With over 60+ awards and two Oscar-qualifying feature documentaries under their belts, they must be doing something right. With a deep focus on character, they have brought environmental issues like dam removal and large-scale mining in pristine watersheds to a general audience, while still managing to get some laughs and tears out of their audiences in the process.
