GPL Film Screening: Uncharted Waters
May 31, 2023 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
In 2021, Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound was designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Region. Come learn about our Biosphere and its unique ecosystem. Bob Turner’s short film A UNESCO Biosphere Region for Átl’ka7tsem / Howe Sound precedes our feature, Uncharted Waters, which shows four diverse young activists’ work to protect our Biosphere: local marine ecologist Fiona Beaty, Bowen artist Di, and Skwxwú7mesh Nation members Jonathan Williams and Nolan Rudkowsky. All four contributed to the Howe Sound Marine Reference Guide, an interactive map of marine life habitats and man-made influences. Filmmakers Molly Dennis and Hannah Siden (@UnchartedWatersFilm) created a special introductory video just for us. Ian Winn and Courtney Smaha will answer questions about the Biosphere and map. This presentation celebrates the Town of Gibsons’ participation in the Year of the Salish Sea, with support from the Sunshine Coast Conservation Association.
