Award-winning filmmaker and writer Jessica Plumb explores the relationship between people and place. As producer, co-director and writer of the feature documentary Return of the River, she helped to tell the story about the largest dam removal in history, on the Elwha River. The film was recognized with a dozen festival awards, including “Best Storytelling” by the International Wildlife Film Festival. Plumb’s short environmental films and installations, often described as video poetry, have screened in galleries and theaters around the world. Her writing has been published in a variety of outlets, including the Seattle Times op-ed pages, Mountaineers Magazine, and Boston Sunday Globe. Before the mountains called her to live on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, she worked in Boston and Beijing. She is the director of Think Like a Scientist: Renewal (Mountainfilm 2019).
