JUMBO WILD (USA/Canada, 2015, 60 min.)
British Columbia's iconic Jumbo Valley is at the center of a complex multi-decade fight: developer Oberto Oberti plans to build a massive resort in a section of the Purcell Range that's both a sacred space for the local First Nations community and a critical environment for grizzly bears. Can activists overcome government interests and eager financiers to keep the valley wild? As a skier and adventure sports filmmaker, Nick Waggoner feels the lure of the resort, but understands that First Nations rights and ecosystem health should take precedence. Directed by Nick Waggoner and produced by Laura Yale.
