About the Film:
We are very excited to present Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World, the winner of the Best Canadian Documentary award at HotDocs 2015, with director Charles Wilkinson in attendance!
This breathtaking film documents the natural beauty of Haida Gwaii, as well the people who live on the remote island. Featuring gorgeous panoramic cinematography of the island and its surrounding waters, the film tells the story of the Haida people, who lived on the island for over 10,000 years before contact with the outside world. Since contact, the island has been subject to rampant logging and over-fishing that threatens the natural world. In addition, the island sits directly in the path of the proposed Oil Sands pipeline to Asia. As the outside, commercial world threatens this natural paradise, the need for awareness is stronger than ever.
Please join is at 7 pm on February 24th in ICT 122 to screen this breathtaking, important and critically acclaimed film.
Directed by Charles Wilkinson
