Event Description

Eternal Abundance will be screening three short documentary films to shed light on the Great Bear Rainforest and impacts of the Enbridge pipeline project, as well as learn from from Eduardo Sousa, Senior Campaigner with Greenpeace Canada who has worked for years in the communities of the region. Finally, we will offer low-impact, locally-sourced organic vegan ingredients to offer a meal option with a portion of proceeds benefitting groups working towards protecting the Great Bear Rainforest.
This is one of several events leading to The Great Bear Rainforest celebration on June 2.

Entry: $5 - $8 sliding scale. Includes organic vegan tea + cookie!

Documentary details:

Cetaceans of Great Bear Rainforest (6 min)
Watch Pacific Wild's latest release -- a beautiful short animation focusing on the whales of the Great Bear Rainforest. Produced by Picture Cloud film & animation of Victoria B.C. this visually stunning and thought provoking animation explores the dire threats facing whales by acoustic ship pollution.

Spoil (44min)
The movie "Spoil" is powerful award winning documentary on the Great Bear Rainforest, showing the splendour of nature, the nature we all want to protect, but our blinkered and incessant addiction to burn more oil, is helping to destroy.

Tipping Barrels (20min)
Tipping Barrels is a unique combination of surfing and environmental journalism that follows surfers Arran and Reid Jackson on a trip into the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, where they learn more about the region and the issues confronting it.
