Today’s Lowdown

After decades of abuse and mismanagement at the hands of some of northern California’s largest industries, what does the future look like for the Eel River?

That is the question at the center of A River’s Last Chance, fisherman-turned-filmmaker Shane Anderson’s award-winning documentary which receives its Humboldt County premiere Friday night at the Eureka Theater. Anderson took nearly four years to shoot the film which features interviews with numerous local environmental experts and stakeholders.

Anderson will take questions after Friday night’s screening. Proceeds from the event will benefit the film’s further distribution and to raise awareness about the Eel’s plight.
