Cetacean Society to screen documentary


The Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean Society, in partnership with Whale and Dolphin Conservation, will be screening the documentary “Artifishal” for Orca Action Month. 

The event will be held on Wednesday, June 5, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Rogue Brewers on the Bay, located at 2320 Marine Science Drive in South Beach. It is free and open to the public.

“Artifishal” is a film about people, rivers and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and the continued loss of people’s faith in nature. The film received the Tribeca X Award at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
