The film presents an in-depth view of the rich, interactive ecosystems of the Fraser River watershed and the people who champion their protection.

Eye-catching photography and accompanying commentaries draw attention to the global significance of the watershed which supports the most productive salmon river in the world and is Canada’s major stopover for millions of migrating birds on the Pacific Flyway.

The film was made with the participation of the Vancouver Aquarium, the David Suzuki Foundation and the UBC department of geography.

Demers has been involved in arts, media and eco-literacy for most of his career. In 2007, he established Monde Films, and has produced and directed five documentaries about sustainability.

His work is in 200 university and college libraries and is also available on the National Film Board Green Channel.

All ages are welcome at the screening. For more information, contact Delta Nature president Tom Bearss at
