What’s so great about the Great Bear Rainforest? A new documentary for IMAX and giant screen theatres that premieres on February 15 offers armchair travellers a giant window into this pristine British Columbia wilderness. Narrated by BC’s own Ryan Reynolds, the film showcases the only corner of the planet where you can spot the elusive white Spirit bear.

Found on Canada’s remote Pacific coast, it encompasses a quarter of the world’s coastal temperate rainforest. The area has been home to Indigenous peoples for thousands of years.
