STAND, co-produced by Sardis-raised filmmaker Nicolas Teichrob, will premiere in Chilliwack on Thursday, June 20, 2013. Having recently picked up BEST FILM at the Vancouver Festival of Ocean Films, Stand continues on its journey across the world to showcase British Columbia. Visually stunning, the film follows the journey of professional, expedition stand-up paddle-boarder, Norm Hann, as he paddles the 350 km east coast of Haida Gwaii, directly adjacent to the proposed tanker route through Hecate Strait. Narrated by Hann, the film highlights the natural beauty and diversity of the marine and terrestrial environment. Also speaking out about the proposal is a Heiltsuk Grade 12 woodworking class building their own cedar stand-up paddleboards as a means of connecting with their traditional territories and protest. Construction of the students’ paddleboards coincided with the Bella Bella Joint Review Panel hearings where 11 students participated in a 48 hour hunger strike – a radical gesture. Joining Hann is surfing icon and Tofino-native, Raph Bruhwiler. Bruhwiler demonstrates the lifestyle and connection to the coast that many on Vancouver Island maintain and highlights how the proposal’s potential affects are not limited to BC’s North and Central Coast, but would alter an entire west coast way of life. “One part surf, one part nature, and one part environmental documentary, STAND doesn’t fit into a traditional category of film,” says Hann. “We wanted people to feel like they are truly experiencing this special place that is, in fact, quite difficult to access yet highly threatened.” “We hope to offer an insight into the culture, landscape and freedom of the west coast, and along the way raise awareness about what is at stake,” says co-director Nicolas Teichrob. Nicolas is a Sardis Secondary grad of 2002 and a geo-scientist graduate of UBC. The Chilliwack showing of STAND takes place at the G.W. Graham School Theatre on Thursday June 20, 2013 at 8pm. Tickets are $10.00 (adults) and $5.00(kids 12 and under) and can be purchased online @ Store.Standfilm.com; @ Mt. Waddington’s Outdoor Store near Vedder Crossing(cash only); or @ the door (cash). A question and answer period with filmmaker Nicolas Teichrob will follow the film screening. STAND is produced by Nicolas Teichrob Photography and b4apres Media and World Premiered on May 3, 2013 in Vancouver, BC. STAND teaser: https://vimeo.com/52119128 Stand is presented by Quiksilver Waterman and supported by Ikelite, Wefi Surfboards, The Escape Route, Pacific Wild, Boardworks Surf Canada, and Kalavida Surf Shop. Additional support provided by SBC Surf, Coast Mountain Culture, the Dogwood Initiative, Soul Haven Sailing, Mountain Surf Adventures and Tofino Surf Adventures.
