Occupied Cascadia Documentary Trailer

The Cascadia Movement has a Kickstarter Campaign to raise money for their documentary. I have discussed the possibility of alliances between the Cascadians and Pacific NW Tribes and First Nations before. Their concept of bioregionalism is close to our traditional system of self governance. Once upon a time our tribes were decentralized federations of independent, bioregionalist, stateless clans and bands.

OCCUPIED CASCADIA is a documentary film exploring the emerging concept of bioregionalism throughout the Pacific Northwest. And while we focus our lens on Cascadia, this story appears to be examining the transforming global shift taking place.

The Backdrop:

It is widely known that we live in a world surrounded by chaos and our environment is on the brink of devastation. While it has become quite clear to most that something must change, how do we actually come together and figure out the seemingly impossible?

What is Cascadia and what is bioregionalism? What quality of life will be available for future generations? Will they be able to breathe the air and drink the water? Will we be able to overcome our fears and begin this very real and necessary dialogue? Explore these concepts and more.

To focus on our bioregion is hardly a new concept:

“It has been the animating cultural principal through ninety-nine percent of human history and is at least as old as consciousness.” – Jim Dodge

Every place on earth exists within a bioregion. Cascadia is the land of falling waters located on the northeast Pacific Rim. Resource wars are upon us, governments are more oppressive than ever, global economies are destabilizing and collapse has become a common reference, so how will humanity adapt to survive these catastrophic times? The United States is divided, as is Canada, and THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING.

  1. Hey! The Occupied Cascadia film is nearly finished, and we have a Indie GoGo launched so we can set off on a film tour for 3 months. If we get enough funds, we really want to take the film north to Tlingit Country and back!
