ABOUT

Finding Solitude is an environmental film about saving the alpine, glaciers, and forests on Vancouver Island. Through interviews with scientific, environmental and indigenous cultural leaders the film explores the importance of alpine, glacier, and forest eco-systems. It also examines the current state of the region, and the critically important steps to obtain a sustainable future.

Full film released Nov 16, 2019 and on tour. Online release slated for 2021.

 

UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES

 Finding Solitude will include a variety of different perspectives through the interviews of a diverse group of individuals. 

 

The traditional outlooks, spiritual connections, and land use principals of the Ahousaht, Tla-O-Qui-Aht, and K'omoks people will be discussed, in addition to the cultural history of maintaining healthy territories and what practices will need to be adopted or revitalized in order to ensure the Island's land is preserved for future generations.

Southern BC's rapidly disappearing glaciers and the actions necessary to preserve what remains are explained by SFU Glaciologist Gwenn Flowers.

 

 Sustainable Land use practices and visions for the future will be explored with The Nature Conservancy's Emerald Edge Initiative.
