More WIFF news about Opening Weekend Saturday February 6/7:

From Hawaii for its Canadian premiere, Susan Kucera's film Breath of Life ponders what might be the central dilemma of our continued existence on the planet: are we evolved enough to save ourselves?

It's a startlingly beautiful movie which features the dire conclusions of philosophers and evolutionary biologists and the ground-level observations of ranchers, farmers and others in touch with the earth, side-by-side with the quiet possibility expressed by native Hawaiian wisdom-keepers. Enormously thought-provoking. Come talk it out with Kucera at the 4pm show on Sunday, February 7th, when she visits the Festival by Skype.

Also shows at 7:30pm on the Festival's opening night, February 6.
