Rumble: the Indians Who Rocked the World directed by Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana; Best Feature Length Documentary, Best Cinematography and Best Editing at 2018 Canadian Screen Awards. In the oft-cited history of American music, there is a missing chapter that deserves our attention and respect: the influence of Native Americans. Despite attempts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture in the United States, indigenous musicians played an important role in helping to shape the soundtracks of our lives. Many early pioneers of the blues had Native as well as African American roots. And as the folk rock era took hold in the 60s and 70s, Native Americans helped to define its evolution. Rumble tells the stories of these iconic Native musicians through playful re-creations and little known stories, alongside concert footage, archives and interviews with some of America's greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them, and were inspired by them. Featuring some of the greatest music stars of our time, the film reveals the important - but rarely acknowledged - impact of indigenous musicians on the American music scene.
Released in 2017; running time 103 minutes.
Admission is by donation; Film Society Members are free. The Friday Harbor Film Festival has selected the top rated films of the 2018 Film Festival to screen at the Grange for the Best of the Fest 2019 Series.

A River's Last Chance: a story of Salmon, Timber, Weed and Wine Along California's Mighty Eel River directed by Shane Anderson; Award of Excellence at the Impact DOCS Awards 2018. The Eel River, flowing through the pristine redwood forests of Northern California, is one of the most unique, diverse and dynamic rivers in America. The wild salmon that frequent the river have weathered decades of abusive logging practices, over-fishing, catastrophic floods, and a hydropower dam that diverts water out of the basin. Now they face major competition for the water that is needed to feed the region's growing cannabis economy as well as the billion-dollar Sonoma and Mendocino wine industry. California's recent legalization of marijuana and an upcoming federal dam relicensing process will soon determine the watershed's future. Will the salmon fall victim to these competing needs, or will we given them the opportunity to thrive? In highlighting these serious challenges to an important ecosystem, A River's Last Chance builds the case that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds and encourage both the river's recovery and its economic future.
Released in 2017; running time 67 minutes.

The Kingdom: how fungi made our world directed by Annamaria Talas; Best Film, 2018 SCINEMA International Science Film Festival
Intelligent Trees directed by Julia Dordel and Guido Tolke; Best Environmental Documentary Feature at 2017 Atlanta Docufest.  
The Kingdom - since the dawn of life, fungi have been at the very heart of land-based evolution. Neither plants nor animals, fungi are a kingdom in their own right. Their spore-based life form literally ate rocks to kickstart our planet's ecology, and fungi continue to play a significant role in every breath we take. We are certainly aware of one form of fungi - mushrooms. These tasty morsels are the "fruit" of the fungi and are only a small part of the fungal life that is all around us. The fungus Penicillium is the source of penicillin, a powerful antibiotic that along with 10 others derived from fungi, have been lifesavers for millions of people. A recent scientific breakthrough in Canada is developing antibiotics as lethal weapons in the fight agains superbugs. According to the film's director, "Fungi represent both a dire threat and a tremendous opportunity to humanity. So it's well and truly time to get to know them."
Released in 2018; running time 52 minutes.
Intelligent Trees - shows a side of trees that most of us have never seen before. Trees talk, know family ties, and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? German forester Peter Wohlleben and forest ecologist Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia have been observing and investigating communication between trees over decades. Trees are so much more than rows of wood waiting to be turned into furniture, buildings or firewood. They are more than organisms producing oxygen and cleaning the air for us. They are individual beings that have feelings, know friendship, have a common language, and look after each other. This documentary explores the ways trees communicate with each other - from a forester's observations and through scientific detective work. What is the significance of this discovery to our lives and our treatment of the forests? This knowledge has the power to radically change our understanding of nature.
Released in 2016; running time 45 minutes
Admission is by donation; Film Society Members are free. The Friday Harbor Film Festival has selected the top rated films of the 2018 Film Festival to screen at the Grange for the Best of the Fest 2019 Series.
