Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World screening
About the Event
If you’ve never visited Haida Gwaii, then this is a great place to start. Charles Wilkinson's stunning cinematography vividly captures the raw beauty of this very special part of the world. It is also, of course, a battlefield, though Wilkinson finds reasons to hope that First Nations' long-view of environmental sustainability can prevail over short-term economic interest. Granted this is a complicated and paradoxical struggle, and Wilkinson hears firsthand from those figuring out their own way forward in practical, not ideological, terms. The film is all the more inspiring for that.
