Lantern to screen ‘The Wild’ doc on Thursday

Aside from the rest of its streaming schedule, the Magic Lantern Theater is scheduling a special documentary event on Thursday that carries an urgent ecological appeal.

That appeal involves the documentary film "The Wild," directed by Mark Titus, which which will be shown in a "live" virtual screening at 7 p.m. Thursday. Joining Titus in a live-stream interactive event will be climate-change artist Zaria Forman, wilderness photographer Drew Hamilton, Chad Brown and Everette Anderson.

According to the theater's press release, "An urgent threat emerges to spur filmmaker Mark Titus ('The Breach') back to the Alaskan wilderness — where the people of Bristol Bay and the world's largest wild salmon runs face devastation if Pebble Mine, a massive copper mine is constructed."
