“It’s not blind opposition to progress, but opposition to blind progress”- John Muir
Venice, CA (January 30) - At great environmental risk, and against the wishes of most British Columbians and its 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. Groundswell, 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.
