2:00 pm: Guest speakers Drew Copeland and Jon Chiang: Sound Water

From the Headwaters of the Elaho River, down the Squamish and into Howe Sound–Sound Water is a film that questions our pursuit for adventure, our relationship with nature and with ourselves.

About Drew: The Coast Ranges have proven to be an enduring source of inspiration for Drew Copeland. Seeing what lies over the next hill has compelled him since first arriving on the West Coast 10 years ago. Seeking out unfrequented locations and grasping something of the human experiences found therein has been a major theme of his life.

His passion for going outside has led him to co-create a guiding-tourism enterprise, Outdoor Explore, which has the goal of sharing some of the beauty of these hills with others.

About Jon: A director based in Vancouver, Jon’s work focuses on creating intimate and moving branded films for his clients. His previous short documentary ‘The Lion’ was awarded the People’s choice award at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival. It has also been screened at the Asian American International Film Festival and Vancouver Short Film Festival.

Jon’s curiosity about Howe Sound/Atl’Kitsem, led to the creation of Sound Water, his first outdoor short documentary.

A beautiful film, Sound Water begins by asking a simple question” “Where does the water come from?”. It leads to a more complex series of questions: “What does our connection to water mean?”, “What about our connection to nature?”. We are sure you will enjoy the film and the chance to talk to the film makers.

We hope that you will be able to join us; everybody is welcome to attend.
