Inspired by Kwaxsistalla, a Kwakwaka’wakw clan chief, the filmmaker embarks upon a cinematic journey contrasting the tree-farms that dominate the landscape surrounding his home on Vancouver Island with an ancient rainforest on the Pacific Coast of Canada.


Rainforest is a sumptuously filmed documentary of the ancient forest… I’m guessing you’ll enjoy this film immensely. It mixes gorgeous imagery with stories of the recent past that will horrify and excite you.

This movie is not one to miss.

Kyle Empringham for World Wildlife Fund Canada Blog

With breath-taking imagery taken from angles most people can never imagine seeing first-hand, Rainforest is both inspiring and educational in its scope, as it uncovers the haunting reality of the situation in B.C.’s old-growth forests.
