Raincoast has teamed up with two Vancouver filmmakers, Zack Embree and Devyn Brugge, to produce Directly Affected, a documentary profiling the exclusionary NEB process. From First Nations to Burnaby homeowners to Chilliwack fishermen to Gulf Islands residents, the film tells how we are all directly affected.
The first two events as part of the tour occurred in mid-January at Simon Fraser University and on Pender Island. Both were a rousing success and have set the tone for the rest of the tour.
We’re excited to announce that we have now secured support to begin a national tour of the Directly Affected film! As we develop our web series, Where We Live, we will continue to help return the conversation to the public and provide a platform for individuals and communities to be heard. Tour locations will include Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal. We also have more events planned for the lower mainland and a screening kit coming soon.
