Green Screens: Finding Farley

When Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison (Being Caribou), along with their 2-year old son, Zev, and indomitable dog Willow set out to trace the footsteps of one of Canada's most famous writers, Farley Mowat, they mean it literally. Their 5000-kilometre trip – trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling from the prairies to the Maritimes – is captured in this feature-length documentary.

When the family reaches their final destination, Mowat's Nova Scotian summer home, it is, as Karsten says, “An affirmation of what the land and animals had already told us… Stories aren't so much written or created as they are released, expressing what's been there all along.”
