Through b4apres Media’s unique style of mashing adventure with real world issues, “Stand” will take you into the heart of the largest temperate rainforest on the planet―the Great Bear. Hung on the skeleton of a good ol’ fashioned adventure undertaken by a group of surfers, the potential effects of introducing super tankers to these pristine waters will be articulated. As the crew moves through this remote region under their own power, the landscape will be unfurled one paddle stroke at a time and punctuated by the faces and fears of the Gitga’at First Nation people who call this garden of Eden their home. Not just an efficient mode of transport, a stand up paddleboard expedition along the proposed tanker route will be symbolic of “standing up” to preserve this last bastion of rainforest. Captured in cinematic High Definition, the film will bring the Enbridge Pipeline debate into the the collective consciousness in a way that will have you fishing in your basement for that old fluorescent wetsuit.
