Here and Now • Andy Miller • Documentary Short (7:40) For thousands of years the Native people stewarded the land of the Bay Area, prompting European settlers to describe it as a "tended garden." Today Native Americans are relearning and applying the ancestors' knowledge about the plants, animals, and elements in partnerships with land conservation organizations.
The Georgia Girl • Courtney Quirin • Documentary Short (25:39) Small-scale fishing in British Columbia is dying as large companies maintain a firm grip on licenses and price, paying fishermen less and less as the market price of fish continues to rise. Unwilling to compromise his livelihood, which goes back five generations, a young fisherman is bypassing the traditional route of selling to large seafood corporations and instead is using unique technology to "trace" his fish and instill transparency into a broken food system.
