DOXA Documentary Film Festival’s Motion Pictures Film Series, with support from the City of Richmond, is very happy to present Sasha Snow’s film Hadwin’s Judgement, the stunning cinematic adaptation of John Vaillant’s Governor General Award-winning novel The Golden Spruce. When ex-logger Grant Hadwin mysteriously disappeared into the dark waters of Hecate Strait, his story could easily have vanished into the legends and lore of the West Coast. Vaillant’s spare and powerful prose immortalized Hadwin, fleshing out the history of the man at the centre of the story.
Screening followed by a Q&A with John Vaillant, author of the award-winning novel The Golden Spruce.
