Join the Reel Causes board and other members for our 2022 AGM and screening of climate justice documentary Before They Fall

Fairy Creek is the last unprotected, intact valley on southern Vancouver Island, on Pacheedaht Territory. Before They Fall follows Indigenous Peoples, conservation groups, and scientists as they come together to join the decades-long battle to protect these endangered old-growth forests. 

The film explores the characters’ individual relationships with ancient forests, and why it’s imperative we collectively protect them. It touches on potential solutions, like a transition away from old-growth in the future of logging, and Indigenous sovereignty.
