Conservation groups, First Nations communities and scientists come together in this timely, talented short film about how a decades-long battle to protect endangered old-growth forests in BC escalates at Fairy Creek (the last unprotected, intact valley on Southern Vancouver Island).
This story explores the characters’ individual relationships with ancient forests and why it’s imperative that we collectively protect them. It touches on potential solutions, such as a transition away from old-growth logging and providing Indigenous sovereignty.
Cam is a film director and cinematographer from Victoria, BC who has found a niche in short conservation-based documentaries. His directorial debut about Ocean plastics, “Plastic Beach”, was chosen to screen at the Omnimax theatre in Science World for the Elements International Film Festival, and since then Cam has directed a number of short films that cover topics from overfishing in the Salish Sea, to preserving British Columbia’s remaining ancient forests. Cam’s next career goal is to direct and complete a feature-length documentary.
