‘Fire in the hole!’ B O O M! Blending explosive footage, emotion and the power of a newly freed river after being blocked for 100 years, this video celebrates the power of art-activism and the role it played in the second largest dam removal project in world history. The 20-year effort to remove antiquated Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington state began when a few wild-river and salmon loving art-activist dared to call for dam demolition.
