Bonny Glambeck and Dan Lewis are seasoned kayakers, having paddled much of the BC coast. Their work building the fledging temperate rainforest movement culminated with the mass protests of Clayoquot Summer 1993. Their efforts to protect BC’s rainforests continue to this day. They recently founded Clayoquot Action.
TAMO CAMPOS: BEYOND BOARDING
In his multimedia live show with photos and videos Tamo Campos describes how he is finding balance between being an activist and extreme sports person. Tamo ponders the opportunity that climate change presents us, and is researching solutions around the world.
23 year old Tamo Campos grew up in North Vancouver. A sponsored snowboarder chasing winter for the last 12 years he’s now putting roots into both environmental and humanitarian work. It’s lead to the founding of the organization of Beyond Boarding. Beyond Boarding spreads awareness of Environmental and social issues in the outdoor community. In the last year their group has done humanitarian projects in the Headwaters, ridden volcano craters in Patagonia, fought a coal mine in the Sacred Headwaters, presented to various high schools, created two documentary films, and split boarded around BC in a school bus that runs on waste veggie oil.
Canada, 2013, 46 minutes
Directed by: Nicolas Teichrob and Anthony Bonello STAND takes viewers on a journey through the waters of British Columbia's west coast. Under threat by the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker route is a coastline of immense beauty, pristine ecosystems, and a way of life rich in culture and history. Through the efforts of expedition stand-up paddler Norm Hann, an aboriginal high school class building their own stand-up paddleboards as a form of protest, and the powerful surfing of iconic west coast native Raph Bruhwiler, the diversity of people, landscape and wildlife that would be affected by an oil spill is articulated. STAND takes you to the core of the issue and unfurls the soul of B.C.'s west coast one paddle stroke at a time.
Nicolas Teichrob and Anthony Bonello ventured into the STAND film project in June of 2011 with really no idea what it would entail. Norm Hann, expedition standup paddleboarder, was to be involved, but that was about the only thing that the duo had figured out. Throughout the course of traveling along the west coast of B.C., the film began to take shape as the crew showcased the woodworking of students in Bella Bella and connected with iconic west coast professional surfer, Raph Bruhwiler. Although the project was filled with many curveballs and unexpected problems, inherent of any project on the volatile west coast, the moments where the stars needed to align happened and elements of the project were captured and shared that could never have been pre-conceived. Bonello and Teichrob both take great pride in working on a project that shares the west coast of BC and the threats that it faces.
