XBOUNDARY
Documentary (6 mins.) SC Premiere

Director: Ryan Peterson

Producers: Ryan Peterson and Travis Rummel

Synopsis: An open-pit mining boom is underway in northern British Columbia. The massive size and location of the mines—at the headwaters of major salmon rivers that flow across the border into Alaska—has Alaskans concerned over pollution risks posed to their multibillion dollar fishing and tourism industries. These concerns were heightened with the Aug 4, 2014, catastrophic tailings dam failure at nearby Mt. Polley Mine in BC's Fraser River watershed.
