Coming Home: Restoring Western Canada’s lost salmon run
A short teaser trailer for a film about restoring Western Canada’s lost salmon run. This film is currently in pre-production.
In July 2019, the provincial and federal governments along with leaders from three indigenous groups signed an agreement to bring salmon back to the Upper Columbia River. This historic agreement will see the five governments cooperate in an unprecedented way, overcoming both technical and political challenges to reintroduce salmon to the upper Columbia Basin.
In the face of global environmental changes, this film has the potential to show the healing and restoration that can happen when various groups work together towards a shared goal. At the heart, this is a story about reconciliation and restoring balance to an ecosystem.
A look inside the fascinating and romantic craft of violin making with award-winning violin maker Ryan L Soltis.

A 6,000 Mile Search for Beauty
Inspired by the haunting beauty of a petrified forest, author Eileen Delehanty Pearkes embarked on a journey to visit rainforests across the North American West. This search for beauty became an exploration and meditation on what these rainforests, and the indigenous cultures who have called them home for millennia, can teach us about responding to climate change.
