'This Living Salish Sea' screening Sat Sep 16, 2pm at the Raven's Cry Theatre in Sechelt 

Exploring the rich bio-diversity of our local waters, diver and environmental activist Sarama shows us the ecosystem we are trying to protect from inappropriate industrial development. Glorious underwater footage and talks with environmentalists, scientists, and First Nations, reveal the evolving story of our Salish Sea.

“Having had long experience of how rich the life was in this sea, I could only imagine that people must lack this knowledge [of the threats of tankers and industrialization] and intimacy with the living treasure that lies at our very doorstep.”

Sarama considers the film a community effort, “Together, we have all made this happen. What is shown on the screen reflects powerfully the input, the giving and the caring of the community.”

Sarama and MLA Nicholas Simons will be available for questions and discussion after the film.

Admission is by donation; all ages are welcome.
