For the Love of Salmon

Film synopsis

Under a haze of wildfire smoke and with her ancestors watching from above, Keely Weget-Whitney steps into the frigid and fast-moving waters of the Fraser River with one goal in mind: make people care. Join the 25-year-old member of the Stl'atl'imx First Nation as she embarks on a 60 kilometre swim to bring awareness to the depleting number of salmon and its impacts on her culture and the environment. "I just feel that if I care, a young Indigenous Stl'atl'imx mother, people will reflect on that, and they'll say why am I not caring, what can I do for a change?" As she battles the strong current and her own self doubt, Keely encourages us all to come together to make change.
