Damien Gillis presents this new 23 min documentary on the environmental, socio-economic, and cultural impacts of the global salmon farming industry. The film takes audiences on a whirlwind tour of countries where the industry operates - Norway, Scotland, Ireland, Chile, and Canada - talking to top marine scientists, conservationists, indigenous and labour leaders, as well as the heads of the mainly Norwegian industry. "Farmed Salmon Exposed" connects the dots around the world and reveals the pattern of devastation this industry leaving in its wake. Damien Gillis is a Vancouver-based documentary filmmaker with a focus on environmental and social justice issues - especially relating to water, energy, and saving BC's wild salmon. His film "Farmed Salmon Exposed" was premiered around the world during the recent Global Week of Action on Farmed Salmon, presented by the Pure Salmon Campaign.
