About the Film:

Patagonia and the Honolulu Museum of Art are proud to present the Hawai’i premiere of Artifishal, a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. The film explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.

With a craving for the simple life, Kimi followed in her dad’s footsteps, winning a U.S. National Spearfishing Championship in 2008.
