el rio es familia
The Canihuante indigenous community has been fighting to protect the Valle de Elqui for decades. “El Rio es Familia” captures the Canihuante’s fight against the effects of years of destructive mining.
keepers of the north
Plastic waste from around the world has been washing up on Alaskan shores and, for decades, littering the once pristine state. With no state recycling programs in place, this poses a massive environmental problem. Luckily, Pyxera and Chris Pallister, with Gulf of Alaska Keeper (GoAK), have rallied a unique team of collaborators to find a solution.
River Of Angels
Jubilado has been fishing the LA River for over 40 years. While many people think of the river as a sewer, Jubilado and other fly fishermen see the beauty in it.
