In 2012, a group of surfers embarked on a surfing and wilderness adventure in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest — a region full of life, beauty, and a rich history and presence of Indigenous stewardship — to show us all what might be lost if the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline was built.
Their journey was documented in Groundswell.
Join us for a screening of Groundswell and a celebration of Heiltsuk stewardship, community resilience, and surf as we revisit the fight that stopped the pipeline, with updated interviews and a look towards the future of our coast.
