Dianne Whelan is an award-winning Canadian filmmaker and photographer. Her current project is a feature film 500 Days in the Wild an unfolding story that ebbs and flows between documentary and adventure film, taking us into the realm of myth and legend. It is a 5-year ecological and reconciliation pilgrimage along the longest trail in the world – the 24,000 km Great Trail (the Trans Canada Trail) and combines stories of the land, the people and the communities she passes through.
Dianne is resident on Salt Spring in January and February, resting up for the next stage of her journey and working on editing the material collected on the Great Trail to date.
As an AiR pop up resident she will give a multimedia presentation about her current project on January 27th from 2 -4pm at Mahon Hall.
