Each year more than 10,000 hectares (equivalent to more than 10,000 football fields) of old growth forests are cut down on Vancouver Island.

After more than a century of aggressive logging practices, less than 3% of the virgin rainforest remains. British Columbia has become a focal point for resistance to protect this vital resource that only becomes more important as climate change wreaks havoc on the planet. To those who have called these forests home for generations, their significance is obvious, yet an industry that has government backing continues to threaten its existence.

As the trees continue to fall and worldviews collide, a growing movement of Canada’s largest ongoing act of civil disobedience is speaking out and dedicating their lives to ensure we don’t pass a point of no return. From the front lines of the Fairy Creek blockades to the tree top canopy, a wide range of activists, artists, and environmentalists share their deep love and knowledge of this place, mixed with incredible cinematography, providing an unflinching view into this unique and increasingly rare landscape.
