"Wanderings through the delta" was shot and recorded entirely in the Fraser River delta in January and February of 2023. From the fog on the delta the film draws lessons about the human relationship to the animals who call it home--above all birds--and our capacity to know about their existences. It patiently observes these animals and the landscape where they live as it changes before our very eyes and ears in the wake of historical and ongoing human encroachment. "Wanderings" provides a moving, and on occasion stark, portrait of this biologically magnificent, at times stunningly beautiful, and always woefully under-protected area.
