VIFF: Eider ducks and salmon forests
Linda Nowlan October 5, 2011
Watching People of a Feather last night in a packed cinema made me think of the similarities between the Inuit’s reliance on eider ducks and First Nations’ reliance on salmon here in BC. In both places, the species are at the centre of the ecosystem, and of a way of life.
VIFF: Waking the Green Tiger
Sara Falconer October 1, 2011
One of the coolest things about being in Vancouver for the film festival is that I get to meet some of the people behind the films. On opening night, I met Gary Marcuse, director of Waking the Green Tiger, and I was immediately charmed by his passion for both storytelling and for the environment. Yesterday, we had a quick moment between screenings to chat about his film, which has its world premiere today.
