Film Slams Oregon Forest Practices

Feb 10, 2016

Environmental groups have been calling for changes to the Oregon Forest Practices Act for years. 

A film at this week's Siskiyou Film Fest in Grants Pass (Feb. 12) shows why.

"Behind the Emerald Curtain," produced by the group Pacific Rivers, examines the forestry practices on private land that are regulated by the OFPA. 

Clearcuts figure prominently, and pesticides as well.

  Filmmaker Shane Anderson and film fest leader Jeanine Moy drop in with details of both film and fest.
