DEEP DIVE: The Documentaries

Posted July 11, 2019 at 5:48 am by

“Deep Dive: the doc­u­men­taries” will be held on July 13 at the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty The­ater at 100 2nd Street North in Fri­day Har­bor, WA from 9:30 AM to 5 PM. (A satel­lite event of “Deep Dive: the exhib­it” at San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art in Fri­day Har­bor, WA. The exhib­it runs from June 14 to Sep­tem­ber 16).

“Deep Dive: the doc­u­men­taries” is an event that strives to use mul­ti­di­men­sion­al art to share the beau­ty and chal­lenges of our Sal­ish Sea, the frag­ile waters around the San Juan Islands rang­ing from South British Colum­bia, Cana­da all the way down to Olympia, WA. Sci­ence will be inter­spersed with visu­al, musi­cal, dance and poet­ic art to cre­ate a unique learn­ing experience.

Two brand-new doc­u­men­taries will be shown! “Arti­fishal” is a doc­u­men­tary cre­at­ed by Patag­o­nia about fish farms and hatch­eries and their impact on native salmon species. “Dammed to Extinc­tion” is describ­ing the issues relat­ed to the loss of free-flow­ing rivers and sub­se­quent deple­tion of salmon.

Short videos made by the Seat­tle Times describ­ing cur­rent issues with the South­ern Res­i­dent Killer Whales will be shown. Bal­let dancers from the Pacif­ic North­west Bal­let have cre­at­ed a beau­ti­ful video called APEX describ­ing the plight of the Orcas through dance. Short trail­ers will high­light the work of up and com­ing inter­na­tion­al video­g­ra­phers who spent time on San Juan Island last summer.

Blake Bud­will and Luke Erick­son, two San Juan Island high school stu­dents will present a trail­er of their 50-minute doc­u­men­tary titled “Fad­ing Sound”.

At the end of the day we will wrap up with pos­i­tive actions we as indi­vid­u­als can choose to make to help our ecosys­tem become healthy again and save our beloved South­ern Res­i­dent Killer Whales.

This is a satel­lite event of the DEEP DIVE exhi­bi­tion at San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art, which uses art as a voice to illus­trate the beau­ty and the chal­lenges of the Sal­ish Sea. The exhib­it is open from June 14 to Sep­tem­ber 15, 2019.

“DEEP DIVE: the doc­u­men­taries” show­cas­es cur­rent, thought pro­vok­ing doc­u­men­taries about issues unique to the Sal­ish Sea and min­gles them with art that speaks for the voice­less. Each show­ing will be fol­lowed by a 15-minute Q&A with the video­g­ra­phers or peo­ple in the video.

At the end of the day we wrap up with a call to action to make at least one change in how we use the frag­ile waters around us to pro­tect what we love.
