Description

Encore: Bringing back some of the hottest documentaries for an encore presentation.

Breathtaking footage soars through Haida Gwaii in this Hot Docs award-winning film, which takes a closer look at the stunning and storied archipelago off the coast of British Columbia. Audiences can feast their eyes on old-growth forests and jagged coastlines, a glimpse of unfettered nature. Here, in one of Canada’s most precious natural spaces, battle cries are rising as the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline spills directly into the surrounding area—going against the ethos of the community and threatening the environment. This is not the first time Haida Gwaii has seen a fight: the Haida Nation has time and again fought crucial battles against disease, rampant logging and over-fishing. And today, the islands are populated with a diverse community of artists, scientists and more, uniting to protect land and sea for the next generation. With a keen eye and generosity of spirit, Wilkinson brings the people of Haida Gwaii into focus in this daringly optimistic and spirited look at a community living in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
