A few days ago, I watched this powerful movie in North Vancouver. Written, directed and produced by Sarama, it explores the beauty of the Salish Sea – a sea that knows no borders – home to more than seven million people on the west coasts of Canada and the U.S.
Spectacular underwater photography reveals the living treasures of the Salish Sea and the grassroots resistance to the corporate fossil fuel agenda that threatens it. There is a wonderful section on Howe Sound/Atl’kitsem, which includes glorious footage of the recently discovered and thought-to-be-extinct Glass Sponge Reefs.
Sarama is a passionate filmmaker who loves the Salish Sea and is devoting his life to its protection. It was a real pleasure to meet him and to view his film.
