How To See Water

“Water, though an inescapable and pervasive environment, is hard to see”

Kevin McMahon has made many documentaries about water, including The Falls, about Niagara; Stolen Spirits of Haida Gwaii, featuring Haida spirits on a war-canoe journey; An Idea of Canada, which follows Adrienne Clarkson on a tour of Canada’s three ocean coasts; Waterlife, about the Great Lakes; and Standing Wave, a journey with Shad down the Nahanni River. Kevin’s most recent project is the ten-hour epic The Polar Sea, which follows amateur sailors journeying through the melting Northwest Passage.
