I was invited to present at the Mountain Variety Show in Whistler during the World Ski and SNowboard Festival. This was my presentation. It features the students of the Bella Bella Community School and documents their 48 hour hunger strike to oppose the Northern Gateway pipeline. The students were between 14 and 18 and held strong despite daily feasts held by the community and needing to still attend classes.
These students are part of a feature documentary titled STAND that we are currently working on. You can learn more about it at standfilm.com/ and watch the trailer at vimeo.com/38708656.
Thanks to the students for being an inspiration. Thanks also to Chris Williamson, a teacher at the school, for facilitating my being there.
