GROUNDSWELL is the culmination of an groundbreaking expedition partnering Raincoast and our research vessel, Achiever, Patagonia and a world-famous team of surfers. The remarkable 25-minute documentary produced by Chris Malloy and Woodshed Films chronicles not only world-class surfing adventures in the Great Bear Rainforest, but provides a compelling examination of  our energy future, geopolitics, aboriginal rights and more.
