Cascade Crossroads: New 30 minute documentary completed!
It's with great pride that I'm announcing that Cascade Crossroads, the thirty minute documentary film commissioned by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition has been completed. In fact, it's already been delivered to the theater in anticipation of the private sponsor screening on January 9th, 2018. The 120+ in attendance will include sponsors, including Patagonia, Sierra Club, Conservation Northwest, Forterra and many others, as well as many of the interviewees through whom the story is told.
From the press release:
Cascade Crossroads is a 30-minute documentary film chronicling the story unfolding over and under Interstate 90 just east of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington’s Cascade Mountains. Here at the intersection of a major east-west transportation corridor and a crucial north-south wildlife migration corridor, a monumental project combining conservation, collaboration, and innovation led to the construction of North America’s largest wildlife crossings project in conjunction with major infrastructure improvements for motorists.
The I-90 Snoqualmie Pass East Project, and the wildlife crossings and roadway improvements within it, is a win-win for people and animals that offers a new model for major infrastructure projects bisecting wild places. Commissioned by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, the Cascade Crossroads film aims to not only share this unique story but also inspire action in other landscapes facing similar tensions between wildlife and roadways.
The film is produced, filmed and edited by myself along with producers Sandy Dang Asher and Kristoffer Browne, my collaborators of many years, and executive produced by Charlie Raines and Jen Watkins of the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition.
Information on screenings and streaming availability will be forthcoming.
I'm very excited to share with the world what we've been working on for nearly two years!
