This 20 minute documentary from QuestU students explores the geology of the west coast of British Columbia, specifically the area known as the Sea to Sky corridor.

The doc focuses on The Barrier, a 300 meter tall, crumbling lava dam retaining the Garibaldi Lake system and some of the hazards it brings.

Beyond the Barrier takes a look at how living below this hazard can change the way we see ourselves as humans with respect to the power of nature.

Check it out.
