FREE Screening for National Canadian Film Day
March 29, 2016
Please join Lunenburg Doc Fest in celebrating National Canadian Film Day on April 20th with a FREE screening of Haida Gwaii: On The Edge of the World.
This inspiring and hopeful story set on the pristine Haida Gwaii archipelago shows how the distinct world view of this 14,000 year old society is co-mingling with an influx of progressive, modern urbanites to create a sustainable world that well may survive the formidable challenges of the 21st century.
“So much more than a profile of this remarkable place and the cast of characters who populate it, this film captures the heart and heartbreak of the clashes it has seen, primarily over logging (in an unforgettable interview, a former police officer, who is Haida, recalls having to arrest his auntie at a protest). And it hints at what’s to come in a showdown over Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. As one resident warns and promises: ’We are ready to fight, believe me.’”
