“The Breach” Announces National Tour: Powerful documentary about wild salmon and Bristol Bay is essential viewing

Winner of Best International Feature Documentary at the 2014 Galway Film Festival and Best of Fest selection at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival, The Breach will begin a 12 city national tour, and be available on all major VOD platforms (including Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, iTunes, Sony PlayStation, Vudu and Xbox Video) via FilmBuff, starting April 21.

The Breach follows fishing guide/filmmaker Mark Titus who embarks on a journey to discover why wild salmon populations plummeted in his native Pacific Northwest, and what might bring them back. Along the way, Titus unravels a trail of human hubris, historical amnesia and potential tragedy looming in Bristol Bay, Alaska – all conspiring to end the most vital wild food left on the planet.

“Bristol Bay is our last chance to get it right the first time,” says filmmaker Mark Titus. “Almost everywhere else on the planet, with the exception of Alaska, we’ve decimated our wild salmon runs. The deeper I got into making this film, the more I realized that consumers deserve and need to know where their salmon is from, and be aware of the threats to the future sustainability of our last wild salmon fisheries, like Bristol Bay.”

Weaving together on point interviews, captivating original artwork, archival photos and underwater footage, Titus spins a compelling story about wild salmon, our food choices and the impact we have on our precious waters. The Breach features fishermen, tribal leaders, scientists, artists, authors and chefs - all with a shared knowledge and passion for wild salmon as cultural treasure and nourishing food source. They include Alaska artist Ray Troll, authors David James Duncan (The River Why), David R. Montgomery (King of Fish), Seattle Chef Tom Douglas, Canadian activist Alexandra Morton, former Alaskan Senator Rick Halford and first head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Bill Ruckelshaus.

Additionally, The Breach has teamed up with a diverse and unprecedented coalition of commercial salmon fishermen, sport fishermen, chefs, and seafood suppliers to host a nationwide theatrical tour, launching on April 25th in New York City. Cities on the tour include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, OR, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Miami and Raleigh. Signature events and screenings will feature Q&A panel discussions with filmmaker Mark Titus and sustainable seafood leaders. Attendees are invited to enjoy Bristol Bay sockeye salmon appetizers prepared by local chefs.
