Synopsis

Inspired by his relationship with a Kwaxkwaka'wakw elder, the filmmaker embarks upon a cinematic journey to an ancient rainforest on the Pacific Coast of Canada. Guided by passion and a determination to honour reality, Boyce travels to the most remote corner of Vancouver Island, through some of the most intensive logging on the planet, into a wilderness that is on the brink of extinction. Massive trees thrive along the banks of an ancient river floodplain providing for diverse like forms in the temperate rainforest. This film is an evocative journey, contrasting forestry as practised for ten thousand years by First Nations people with modern logging.
