Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — “The Strong People,” an award-winning documentary chronicling the Elwha River dam removals on the Olympic Peninsula, is coming to the Elwha Klallam Heritage Training Center, 401 E. First St., at 11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 3.

Filmmakers Heather Hoglund and Matt Lowe will be in attendance.

The filmmakers are suggesting a $3 donation to recoup travel and screening fees.

Told through the eyes of the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, “The Strong People” examines the restoration of the Elwha River as two dams are removed, depicting the project’s environmental repercussions and its effects on the tribe.

To explore the range of consequences of the Elwha River dams’ presence and removal, Hoglund and Lowe interviewed tribal members to learn about the importance of the Elwha and its salmon.
