Finding Our Truth

This event has passed

The Fairy Creek Blockade, on Pacheedaht Territory in Southern Vancouver Island has gained international media attention over the past year, shining a light on the desperate fight for the precious old growth forest in the last unprotected, intact valley on the Island.

The film follows the makeshift alliance of conservation groups, First Nations communities and scientists and explores their unique relationship with ancient forests and the decades-long battle to protect Fairy Creek.

The narrative also touches on potential solutions, such as a transition away from old-growth logging and providing Indigenous sovereignty, the continued harvesting of endangered old-growth forests and how logging impacts our fragile ecosytem.

Screening followed by a panel discussion with producer Momme Halbe, activist Rose Henry (Tla’amin Nation), and curator/filmmaker Rylan Friday.
