The selected work demonstrates the power to inspire reflection and positive action towards the social and ecological health of the planet.” Winner of the 2011 Best Mountain Culture Award at the Whistler Film Festival where the jury praised the film for: “re-exposing our most critical environmental issue while at the same time pushing the cinematic experience and limits of storytelling, cinematography and editing.”
