A few years ago, filmmaker Mark Titus produced a great feature-length documentary, “The Breach,” which was a call to action to stop the proposed Pebble Mine. And for a while, it seemed as if the battle were won, after the EPA seemed to put the kibosh on the deal in 2014. At the time, however, we wrote, “While today’s announcement is a major turning point in the campaign, until the EPA issues its final 404c determination, the battle isn’t over.”
That determination had been in the courts for years until this May, when the EPA–under a new administration–settled the lawsuit and allowed the permitting process for Pebble to resume.
So Titus is back on the job, and his next film “The Wild,” will continue the fight. He’s currently looking for support to complete the project, and if you’d like to help, visit the film’s Seed&Spark page. The page itself also contains some great information, so check it out even if you can’t donate to the film.
