Local Film ‘DamNation’ Wins Audience Award at SXSW

DamNation, Felt Soul Medica

Local directors/filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel of Felt Soul Media premiered their latest work DamNation at the SXSW Festival. The film was well received, and won the Documentary Spotlight Audience Award.
Felt Soul directed and edited the film, which was produced with support from Matt Stoecker (Stoecker Ecological) and Yvon Chouinard (Patagonia). The film shows how the nation’s attitude toward dams is changing, from the pride in engineering and reliance on hydropower to today’s consciousness about how important free-flowing rivers are to the ecosystems that support human life.
