When filmmakers Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison (Being Caribou), along with their two-year old son Zev and indomitable dog Willow, set out to retrace the literary footsteps of Farley Mowat they meant it literally. Their 5000KM trip -- trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling from the Prairies to the Maritimes is captured in the feature documentary Finding Farley. When the family reaches their final destination (Mowat's Nova Scotian summer home). It is, as Karsten says, An affirmation of what the land and animals had already told usStories arent so much written or created as they are released, expressing whats been there all along.

Why did a couple drag their young son and a dog across Canada? Because they needed to generate an income and this Maple Syrupy theme had a good chance of getting funding from the National Film Board. Is a child pocked with blackfly, sand fly and deer fly bites evidence of abuse? At least three litres of motor oil were burned into planet-warming greenhouse gases in the production of this travelogue. Give this film a pass but watch any canoeing film by the late Bill Mason (of the NFB).
