On June 23rd, we are showing the Canadian film “Coextinction” in partnership with Dr. Bronner’s. This new documentary shines a light on the plight of Southern Resident Orcas, wild salmon, and other wildlife facing extinction in the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of British Columbia, and examines how these issues intersect with Indigenous rights and the climate crisis. The filmmakers aim to galvanize viewers to take direct action for environmental change and to amplify Indigenous voices and movements to support their rights, sovereignty, and stewardship of their traditional and rightful territories. If you can’t make this screening, “Coextinction” will be available to stream in the US and Canada later this year.
You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy while you’re viewing! This is the first event in our summer film series—we hope that you’ll join us for our screenings of “Inhabitants” in July and “Tending the Garden” in August.
