Hear Our Olympics
Producer: Spruce Tone Films
Theme: Environmental, Nature, Social Issues
The wild Olympic Peninsula is like nowhere else. It has been recognized as a national park, a wilderness area, an International Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, and the quietest space in the lower 48. Yet, the park’s rare and distinctive soundscape is threatened by new and unnatural noises: Navy electronic warfare training by jet in the skies over the park. Hear Our Olympics examines this threat and the challenges it poses to the park’s soundscape as well as to U.S. military veterans. Official selections 2019: Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, The Earth Day Film Festival. Official selections 2018: Portland Eco Film Festival, Walla Walla Movie Crush, River & Ocean Film Festival.
