Portland Ecofilm Festival says
Crying Earth Rise Up is an intimate portrait of the human cost of uranium mining and its impact on sacred water. When one Lakota woman finds that her drinking water tests unusually high for radiation and another discovers her daughter’s medical conditions are related to the contaminated water, both seek the cause and how to stop it. Director Suree Towfighnia and Producer Courtney Hermann in attendance!

Chuitna Coal: More Than Salmon On The Line chronicles the fight to save Alaska’s wild salmon - especially those that spawn in the Chuitna RIver, currently under threat of destruction due to a proposal to develop one of the United States’ largest open-pit coal mines directly through the salmon-rich headwaters there.

Community partners: Oregon PSR (Physicians for Social Responsibility) and WIF-PDX women in film portland, or.
