The National Parks Project

Genre: Documentary

Directors: Peter Lynch, Jamie Travis and others


A wildly ambitious mix of styles and genres united by an explicitly ecological theme, The National Parks Project culls together 13 short films shot across each of Canada’s provinces and territories. Each segment is shot in a provincial park by a single director, working with a trio of musicians to create a kind of visual/aural poem. Not surprisingly, certain passages are more interesting than others, though there’s a sense of aesthetic continuity throughout.
