Our feature interview is with award winning documentary film maker Ian Toews about his upcoming film Grasslands which follows Ian as he explores the diversity, history and culture of Canada’s prairies. The film covers the perspectives of conversationists, First Nations and ranchers on the changing nature of this calm and diverse expanse in the middle of our great country.
