Beyond The Green Veil:
A Picture film by Drew Austin and Michael Darling.
Beyond the Green Veil sets out to explore the juxtaposition between backcountry recreation and the access the logging industry provides. Most outdoor enthusiasts are also environmentalists, caring deeply for the natural world and the locations. However, access to these spots is dictated by a necessary but destructive logging industry.
Michael Darling, a professional surfer, explores this idea, linking up with professional backcountry skier, Chris Rubens, and snowboarder, Timmy Taussig. They understand each other’s worlds by means of an eight-day camping and touring trip in the Selkirk mountains and a surf trip to the west coast of Vancouver Island. Without shying away from the reality, what they learn challenges audiences and recreationists to contemplate their own role in shaping the future of our environment.
Clayoquot Action presents a Jérémy MATHIEU film
On Canada’s west coast there is a place of wonder—a globally significant rainforest, home to whales, wolves and bears. Salmon are a keystone species of this ecosystem. Salmon have also sustained First Nations cultures of this coast for millennia. All this and more is threatened by open net-pen salmon farms.
This film looks at the impacts of salmon farming through the eyes of those fighting to protect wild salmon from extinction. Featuring First Nations members Skookum John (Keltsmaht First Nation) and Joe Martin (Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation), and traditional Chief Ernest Alfred (Na̱mg̱is First Nation), as well as scientist Alexandra Morton.
Official Selection of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival 2024.
