With the approval of the SiteC Dam by the new(ish) British Columbia NDP Party*, I decided to take an aside on the When Once There Was project that I am working on to release a nine minute single shot taken while on the Peace River this past summer. At the time that the shot was taken I was capturing footage that showed the motion of the boat floating down the river. With one camera, set up in the traditional horizontal position, I captured the simplistic beauty of the area that will eventually be flooded if the dam is built.
The experience of floating down this beautiful river could not have been had without the expertise of our boat guide Mark Meirs and his knowledge of the river’s behaviour.
