NEW YORK, NY.- The Film Society of Lincoln Center presents an Alaskan take on David and Goliath as its year-round Green Screens and Independents Night programs present the award-winning documentary “Red Gold” at the Walter Reade Theater, Tuesday, Jan. 6, at 6:30 p.m. A post-screening conversation between directors Ben Knight and Travis Rummel, co-producer and Trout Unlimited conservationist Lauren Oakes, and Film Society curator Marian Masone will tackle the issues of watershed conservation and the impact of big business on the environment, followed by a reception.

“Red Gold” (USA, 2008; 55m), winner of the Best Director and Audience Choice awards at the 2008 Mountainfilm in Telluride festival and the Audience Choice Award at the 2008 Banff Mountain Film Festival, visits the planet’s largest remaining sockeye salmon runs, the Kvichak and Nushagak Rivers in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Mining companies Northern Dynasty and Anglo American want to extract what may be the richest deposit of gold and copper in the world from the rivers’ headwaters. Knight and Rummel document the tension between mine officials who say they can leave the salmon’s habitat untouched and local fisherman who oppose any digging.

“A local issue takes on national implications in this beautifully photographed take on big business’s affect on an indigenous way of life,” says Masone. Wild salmon from Bristol Bay will be available to audience members during the post-screening reception.

The Film Society’s Green Screens program addresses through film the vital environmental concerns of global warming, the safety of the food supply, sustainable living, and more. Green Screens is programmed by Sharon Bahus, Isa Cucinotta and Marian Masone.
