"Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World" tells the story of the inhabitants of Haida Gwaii, the remote archipelago off the Northwest coast of Canada that National Geographic recently named one of the "Must See Places in the World".

As one of the only places in North America where natives actually outnumber and out vote non-natives, the film profiles a unique community comprised of individuals from both groups who are all striving in different ways to undo the damage done by a century of reckless resource extraction, to stop the fleet of oil laden tankers targeting their sea lanes, and restore balance to the islands for the next generation.

A powerful and hopeful story that by its end will make viewers want to rise up and protect not only one of the most beautiful and unique places on Earth but their own natural back yards as well.
