A documentary by Courtney Quirin
It would be a crime not to see San Francisco filmmaker Courtney Quirin’s gorgeous documentary on the big screen. It’s such a visually transportative experience. Quirin spotlights two guardians, environmental gatekeepers checking on the numbers and varieties of salmon in the Great Bear Rainforest. Once part of a team, both are now the last of their ilk, playing a more vital role in protecting the ecosystem around them. It’s a must-see."
It is one thing to watch a film that shows you part of the world that is unknown to most and it is another thing to bring that to the audience. Director Courtney Quirin‘s film Guardian, which made its Canadian premiere at the recent Planet in Focus Film Festival, is a poetic portrait of the last two Guardians who monitor salmon in the Great Bear Rainforest."
