ĀINA (pronounced “eye-nah”) means “that which feeds us” in the Hawaiian language. Some of the world’s largest chemical companies use the island of Kaua`i as an open-air testing ground for pesticides on genetically modified crops. The film highlights a way to address some of the most pressing environmental and health crises facing the island of Kauai - and of island Earth. As ĀINA vividly illustrates, such is the power of sustainable agriculture. The focus is on solutions, the beauty of Kauaʻi and the wisdom of Hawaiian culture. Grand Jury Prize at the Oregon Film Awards.

Haida Gwaii: On the Edge of the World focuses on life on the archipelago along the northern B.C. coast. It tells the story of the people and the region, which has been home to its residents for 14,000 years. The movie tackles themes such as the people’s resilience in the face of over-extraction of its resources, community, and a way of life at odds with the fast-paced, modern world. Haida hereditary Chief Allan Wilson, renowned activist Guujaaw and eco-activist Severn Cullis-Suzuki work alongside scientists, organic farmers, artists and quirky islanders to create a synergy of sustainable development. “Revels in supernatural B.C. beauty… it’s also remarkably astute” POV Magazine
