War For The Woods
Thirty years after historic logging protests on Vancouver Island, the battle to protect old growth forests is still raging.
War for the Woods follows a new generation’s campaign against logging that once again has captured the attention of Canadians, including Stephanie Kwetásel’wet Wood, a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh journalist living and writing in North Vancouver, who reports on Indigenous rights and the natural world.
The documentary follows Wood’s journey to understand how B.C.’s old growth forests have all but disappeared in this troubling time of climate change, and how Indigenous communities are trying to save what’s left.
Produced by Makwa Creative for CBC’s The Nature of Things (Season 62).
