OAKLAND

After a yearlong run of local screenings and film festivals in America and abroad, the latest film by Oakland Trails and Pinecone Pictures has been released online. Originally premiered at a 2018 event celebrating Save the Redwood League’s centennial at the Chabot Space & Science Center, the film highlights “Old Survivor”, the only remaining old-growth redwood in the East Bay hills, and tells the story of Oakland’s resilient, ecologically amazing and now protected redwood forest.
