ABOUT THE FILMS
Artifishal is Patagonia’s new film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.
The Defend the Heart of the Fraser documentary calls attention to the continuing destruction of an environmentally sensitive and culturally-rich ecosystem of the lower Fraser River.
