      Groundswell: A Small Film About Making a Big Stand

      Wednesday, November 7th | Event at 7pm

      A great environmental risk, and against the wishes of most British Columbians and aboriginal people, the Enbridge Northern Gateway project would pipe tar sands oil from Alberta to the coast of British Columbia for delivery to markets in Asia and California. Last fall, Raincoast Conservation Foundation teamed up with filmmaker/Patagonia surf ambassador Chris Malloy to highlight all that's at stake. Chris' short documentary charts an extraordinary surf trip along BC's unspoiled west coast with surfers acting as ambassadors for marine life. Through their remarkable experiences, and compelling narrative by young indigenous leaders, the film provides a fresh voice to a coast in peril. After the film, Chris Malloy and Raincoast will take part in a Q&A.

      Live music by Kevin Murphy (of the Moondoggies)
      Beer provided by Two Beers Brewing Co.
      This event is FREE. Space is Limited.
