The Beaver Believers – Online Film Screening with Director Q&A

May 27, 2020 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 am PDT

The McKenzie River Trust, Siuslaw Watershed Council, and Coast Fork Watershed Council had planned on live screenings of the Beaver Believer film this spring.  Due to COVID-19, those events were canceled.  But we are thrilled to bring the film to your homes by holding the event virtually!
Join us afterward for a live Q&A with the film director, Sarah Koenigsberg! All attendees will be entered into a raffle and Sarah will show us how to make the “Busy Beaver Buzz” drink to enjoy during the film.
Proceeds from the event will support the Siuslaw and Coast Fork Watershed Councils.

About the Film:
The Beaver Believers is a feature documentary that tells the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists – a biologist, a hydrologist, a botanist, an ecologist, a psychologist, and a hairdresser – who share a common vision: restoring the North American Beaver, the most industrious, ingenious, buck toothed little engineer, to the watersheds of the American West.  Shot in eight western states, Mexico, and Canada, through desert drought, raging wildfires, forceful floods, and wetland tranquility, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to take a bite out of the challenges we face, one stick at a time.

About the Director:

Sarah Koenigsberg, director of Tensegrity Productions in Walla Walla, WA, is a filmmaker, photographer, and educator whose work focuses on stories of art, environment, and community in the American West. Her films and teaching cross disciplines, illuminating the power of storytelling as a medium through which to explore complex science and policy issues.
