To the Orca, with Love – Documentary Film Screening

Friday, February 14, 2020 - 7:00pm

Join us on opening night of Against the Current: Orca+Salmon to see a showing of the documentary film To the Orcas, With Love. Directed by Natalie Lucien and with Rob Stewart, David Suzuki, Paul Spong, Alexandra Morton.
What we do to nature, we do to ourselves. A filmmaker’s relationship with orcas inspires her to restore a loving relationship with herself and this remarkable planet. Stories of personal connections with orcas, beautiful cinematography featuring B.C’s resident orcas, and an evocative soundscape composed by Jeff Rona and Ben MacDougall provide an uplifting contrast to the environmental challenges we face. Inspired by elders including environmentalist and CBC Broadcaster, David Suzuki, whale researchers Alexandra Morton and Paul Spong, totem carver Wayne Alfred, and lifelong resident of the Broughton archipelago Billy Proctor, this film is anchored by Rob Stewart’s invitation to rise up and create the world we dream for ourselves.
Viewers will come to understand the importance of the personal choices we make; it becomes clear that what we do to nature, we do to ourselves.
A great Valentines Day date! lets show the Southern Resident Orcas our love!
7pm at Mahon Hall – $10 at the door.
