Award-winning Canadian documentary comes to Vancouver.
This article was originally published in the September 2015 issue of Vancouver magazine. Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World will be playing at Vanity Theatre starting Nov. 20.
For Charles Wilkinson, Haida Gwaii was a life-changing destination.
The documentary filmmaker had travelled to the archipelago to work on the final part of an environmental trilogy he began in 2011 with Peace Out, a look at the impact of fracking in northern B.C., and continued with 2013’s Oil Sands Karaoke, a glimpse into life in Alberta’s tar sands.
He spent several months on Haida Gwaii, interviewing locals working in everything from solar power to marine biology, organic farming to kelp harvesting. Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World captures a community for whom living a simple life is the greatest act of resistance. The islands’ beauty is inescapable, but he digs below the postcard views to find a history marked with successful push-back by the Haida.
