Tired of referring to Chuitna as "the biggest salmon/coal fight nobody has ever heard of," Paul and Sam Weis (the Associate Director of Alaskans First) conceived the idea of leading a media expedition out to the remote Chuitna River to create a film and additional content for an extensive multi-media campaign. The primary product of this expedition is the award winning film Chuitna: More Than Salmon on the Line, which premiered at Wild & Scenic Film Festival in January 2015.
From conception to distribution, the Upstream Journey team played an integral role in every component of the project. After spending a year on the film tour circuit, we are proud to release the full film - Chuitna: More Than Salmon on the Line.
Watch the film, share widely, and take action by texting "Salmon" to 313131. You'l be notified when the time comes to speak up to save the Chuitna.
