The nature film event of 2016
Click to watch the inspiring trailer
When we first heard about people working together to help save thousands of tiny toadlets from being crushed while crossing a busy BC highway, we knew we had the perfect story for a documentary. That’s how Toad People was born.
The western toads cover the road like a black carpet of jumping beans during the summer when they make their annual migration from wetlands to their forest homes. Capturing their perilous journey, and documenting the people working to help save them was vital for us in showing how species at risk in BC need robust protection.
We collaborated with co-directors Isabelle Groc and Mike McKinlay to produce this beautiful visual experience. Accompanied by renowned composer Mark Lazeski's atmospheric original score, the film is a cinematic treat for viewers like you.
So we hope you’ll join us on Nov 30 for the premiere of Toad People, where you’ll hear from the filmmakers, and celebrated conservationists Carrielynn Victor of the Sto:lo Tribal Council and Kai Chan of the UBC Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability.
Where: SFU Woodward's cinema, 149 W Hastings Street, Vancouver
