Groundswell and Reflections
Groundswell chronicles not only a world-class surfing adventure, but provides a cerebral and compelling examination of an issue that embodies many aspects of today’s environmental challenges: our energy future, geopolitics, aboriginal rights and title, and more.
Groundswell will screen with another short documentary, Raincoast’s Reflections: Art for an Oil-Free Coast that opened at the 2012 Vancouver International Film Festival.

Together, we’ll make a powerful visual statement to show the unprecedented depth and breadth of this movement, and make sure our politicians know that we are organizing in the communities they represent.
Let’s shut the door on tar sands pipelines and tankers with a clear message to our provincial and federal representatives. Let’s support the First Nations who have lead the resistance against, tar sands pipelines and tankers. Join us in your community on October 24th to show our governments that BC’s coast must be protected.
