This short film by John Adams features the Splashmob, which greeted ferry communters in Snug Cove, Bowen Island, on May 17th 2013 to alert them to major changes coming to the wild, public foreshore at Cape Roger Curtis on the other side of the island.
The SplashMob was an event staged by StopTheDocks, a group of Bowen Islanders who are trying everything they can think of to preserve the wild beauty of Cape Roger Curtis, protesting the construction of docks there. Interspersed with footage of the Cape, participants speak to the many ways the Cape foreshore is important to them, and why they think it should be kept in its perfect, natural state.
