This short film documents the return of Sockeye salmon up BC’s Adams River, a massive migration that has repeated itself for millennia. In pools and back eddies along the river, thousands of salmon create dynamic and mesmerizing patterns. Splitting the screen into multiple images, the film illustrates a surge that is at once natural and colossal. It is moving art.
