This past summer, fifty of BC’s most celebrated artists picked up their tools and took a journey up the coast.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/49209420 w=500&h=280]
Five-hundred kilometres north of Vancouver is a wild coastline: home to the Spirit Bear and whales, wolf packs and grizzlies, First Nations and coastal communities. With the looming threat of a proposed oil pipeline and hundreds of oil tankers a year, it is a magical place on edge.
This film trailer for the 22 min documentary, by StrongHeart Productions, REFLECTIONS: ART FOR AN OIL FREE COAST shares the story of a Raincoast expedition into a stunning and remote landscape, weaving together the artists’ work and their emotional response to a region at risk and the people that depend on it.

Produced by Raincoast Conservation Foundation & StrongHeart Productions
With Robert Bateman, Ian Reid, Raincoast & friends.
World Premiere Announced:
Vancouver International Film Festival, October 3rd 2012.
