Submitted by Josina Davis-The film “Into the Forest” is an introduction to forests on Haida Gwaii.
Children will learn about the life cycle of trees, the life cycle of
forests, Haida uses of the forest as well as timber and non-timber uses. The
DVD also looks at forest jobs (we’ll meet a local faller, planter, forester, biologist and heritage interpreter) and sustainability.
The DVD was shot entirely on Haida Gwaii with local people. (It is written and directed by Josina Davis, editor and line producer Scott Pierson, original music and audio post production Pat Fairweather, camera Berry Wijdeven, Scott Pierson and Josina Davis and features Linda Tollas, Don Smillie, Jody Bissett, Sean Muise, Peter Dyment and many others.) It is 45 minutes long (including the out-takes) and was funded by SMFRA. There will be an opening of the film on Friday, April 7 at 7 pm at the Tlell Fire Hall. The event is free.
