Letter to the Editor

A round of applause

May 25, 2014 

We’d like to thank Kelly + Yamamoto Productions and the Cal Humanities foundation for agreeing to let us screen their amazing documentary “Rebels with a Cause,” the story of the creation of Point Reyes National Seashore, at the Palm Theater on May 18 as a fundraiser for the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary campaign.

The attendance of filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto with environmental author John Hart for the audience Q&A after the film was equally amazing. And of course, thanks to all the attendees who turned out for a matinee on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and to Jim Dee and his ongoing policy of making the Palm available for a good cause!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is expected to release its criteria for new national marine sanctuaries later this summer. The inspiring historic example of this film gave us new resolve to secure national marine sanctuary status for the waters of the Central Coast.
