Finding Solitude is about saving the alpine, glaciers and forests on Vancouver Island. The film illuminates traditional outlooks, spiritual connections and land use principles of the Ahousaht, Tla-O-Qui-Aht and K’omoks peoples including the cultural history of maintaining healthy territories. The future of all glaciers on Vancouver Island, including Queneesh in the Comox Valley, is bleak. Through interviews with scientific, environmental and indigenous cultural leaders, the film explores the importance of these critical ecosystems. Given the current state of the region, what practices will need to be adopted or revitalized in order to ensure the Island’s land is preserved for future generations?  Beautiful cinematography!
