Kamloops Film Festival Presents: Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World
March 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
Past KFF guests Charles Wilkinson and Tina Schliessler (Oil Sands Karaoke) complete their eco-trilogy with a paean to breathtaking Haida Gwaii and the spirited people who populate it. The natural beauty of this culturally rich archipelago has served as a backdrop for tragedies such as outbreaks of smallpox and the exploitation of natural resources. And yet, the Haida Nation remains undaunted, drawing on 14,000 years of tradition in preparing for a showdown over the Northern Gateway pipeline and planning for a more sustainable future.
