The Last Stand

Documentary
2022
THE LAST STAND for Trees is about saving the world’s last remaining ancient forests. Using the flash-point of British Columbia’s “Battle for the Trees” at FAIRY CREEK- the documentary examines the importance of keeping intact forest ecosystems: here in North America, the Amazon and around the world. Experts like Wade Davis and Leila Salazar-Lopez speak about the impact trees/plants have on our atmosphere, including Carbon sequestration and providing Oxygen for us to breathe. Incorporating unique-access footage at the front-lines of Fairy Creek protests, to block Logging of the last 3% of BC’s old growth, the film does not pull punches. We hear the impassioned words of front-line forest defenders, as well as global forestry experts. The film reveals the complexity of issues facing the world: the need to protect habitat, while balancing economies and jobs, while also recognizing the rights of First Nations’ people controlling resources in their territories. Finally, The Last Stand for Trees looks at solutions…both from cutting edge Silicon Valley companies building carbon-retaining technology, to things average citizens can do, to help save jungles/forests and the Planet.
