The Soul of the Fraser
Nature Vancouver is one of many non-for-profit groups focused on environmental conservation and sustainable living that are working collaboratively with the production team to screen the documentary The Soul of the Fraser ( released in summer 2022) and the Heart of the Fraser (released in 2019). Through these screening events, we are hoping to reach out to our naturalist members and beyond, bring awareness and urgency to the critical conditions the Fraser River is in, and spur much needed actions by all stakeholders.
There will be 2 screening events in Nov co-sponsored by Nature Vancouver and Vancouver Public Library at the Central Library ‘s Montalbano Family Theatre (The Soul of the Fraser on Nov 9th, the Heart of the Fraser on Nov 29th, both 6:30-8:30pm). More details to follow.
In addition, there will be a screening of the Soul of the Fraser at Science World on Oct 19th, presented in partnership by Reel Green™, Birds Canada, Science World, BCIT – Rivers Institute, NERV Productions, and Willow Grove. The admission is free but you need to register on its Eventbrite page below. Please share with your family and friends and let’s amplify the voice for nature!
About this event
The Fraser River forms the largest estuary along the Pacific Coast of North America, is home to over 400 species of vertebrates, thousands of plants and a myriad of small invertebrates. In this documentary screening, follow an ensemble cast ranging from a former government fisheries biologist turned activist to a boat captain with an Indigenous family history long forgotten, as they search for a way to save what’s left of the Fraser Estuary. Following the screening, we will have a special Q&A with river restoration expert Professor Ken Ashley, the cast, and the filmmakers. Step out of the bustle of Vancouver and reconnect with what’s left of the mysterious Fraser Estuary!
