Summary

Patagonia presents an hour-long documentary by Sweetgrass Productions depicting all sides of an epic struggle between backcountry protection and development in British Columbia’s iconic Jumbo Valley – highlighting the tension between protection of wilderness and the backcountry experience and ever-increasing development interests in wild places. As you may already know, a large-scale proposed ski resort threatens the rich wilderness of British Columbia’s Purcell Range – a revered backcountry ski and snowboarding destination with world-class terrain, sacred ground for local First Nations people, and part of one of North America’s most important grizzly bear corridors. This isn’t your typical ski movie. Set against a backdrop of incredible backcountry ski and snowboard footage, Jumbo Wild features unprecedented documentation of all sides of this divisive issue bringing the passionate local fight to protect the Jumbo Valley to life for a global audience for the first time.

The evening will open with a new short film by Patagonia - The Voyage of Swell: Steer With Your Heart
