Edge of the Knife

2018, Helen Haig-Brown, 100 minutes

  • Monday, June 17 at 6:30 pm

Set in the 19th century on the island of Haida Gwaii, a man is forced to retreat into the wilderness after an accident. He then becomes gaagiixiid/gaagiid or a wildman. The title is rooted in the Haida saying "The world is as sharp as the edge of a knife; as you go along, you have to be careful or you will fall off one side or the other."

Cowichan Rideshare is now available!

Cowichan Rideshare is being sponsored the Cowichan Elder Care Co-op. It is a free, online service that links people who want a ride with people able to offer a ride at the same time and to the same location. A contribution to gas costs is suggested based on the distance and number of riders, but the actual amount – if any – is agreed on by the people involved before the ride takes place.

Learn how to register on Rideshare for a ride - or for riders - to  Kelowna or Calgary,  VIU Nanaimo main campus, Departure Bay, and maybe even Mill Bay Terminal to pick up your travelling friend.   Use your car or ride in theirs.  Let’s save money, wear and tear, traffic congestion and the environment - and make some new, diverse  acquaintances of all ages who could use/offer a lift and a trip contribution.
