This is our second screening of SEACC's new film, Irreparable Harm, about Admiralty Island, the Southeast community of Angoon, Hawk Inlet (Weinedel), and the potential impact of the nearby Greens Creek Mine. As the only mine in the country allowed to operate in a national monument, Greens Creek is mandated to cause no irreparable harm to Admiralty Island National Monument, but tests show this might not be the case.
The film is set on Admiralty Island in the small Tlingit community of Angoon where people have looked to the bounty of the sea to provide sustenance and their livelihoods for thousands of years. You will hear from community members living there today who worry about the impacts of the mine on the marine life they rely on and follow scientists from Southeast as they try and answer the question, has the mine caused ‘irreparable harm’?
After the show, hear from SEACC’s staff scientist Guy Archibald about what we do and do not know, what has been hidden, and what now must be done to heal Hawk Inlet.
There is a suggested donation of $5, doors open at 5:45 and the film will start at 6:00.
