Imagine a pristine Alaskan watershed with the most productive Sockeye salmon rivers in the world, teeming with millions of native fish pushing up river to spawn.Now imagine the world's largest open pit gold and copper mine at their headwaters. Produced by Felt Soul Media and Trout Unlimited Alaska, Red Gold is a one-hour documentary film on the proposed Pebble Mine told through the voices of commercial, subsistence and sport fishermen of Bristol Bay, Alaska.

“This has been the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life,” co-director Ben Knight told festivalgoers who gathered for the Mountainfilm Awards ceremony.
"We want this film to spread awareness across the globe that this unmatched resource may be threatened by massive mining development. After 70 days in the Bristol Bay region asking questions, listening to the stories, and witnessing first hand the massive salmon migration, we believe this place needs to be protected." - Travis Rummel, Co-Director RED GOLD.
