CONSERVATION: Elwha Dam removal featured in film fest

The documentary film “Damnation,” which includes the Elwha River dam removal project, will be shown Aug. 1 as part of the inaugural Destiny City Film Festival.

Using voices that reflect both sides of the dam-removal project, the film traces the nation’s pride in building large dams to the philosophical change that not all dams are good.

The film highlights removal efforts on the Elwha and White Salmon rivers in Washington, the Kennebec and Penobscot rivers in Maine and the Rogue River in Oregon.

The 87-minute movie was directed by Ben Knight and Travis Rummel of Felt Sould Media.

The movie will be shown at 3 p.m. at the Blue Mouse Theater, 2611 N. Proctor St., Tacoma. Tickets for a single film are $8, $6 for seniors and members of the military, and $5 for students with ID. There also is a $20 punch card, good for four films, or a $65 all-access pass good for all the films and events.
