Journeying below the surface of the St. Lawrence River
With local documentary film maker
Science and Nature Speaker Series – Cornwall Public Library, March 27th (7 pm)
Cornwall Ontario — On Wednesday, March 27th at 7 pm the River Institute’s Science and Nature Speaker series presents John Earle, a local documentary filmmaker with a passion for communicating about water wherever he is. Whether he is scuba diving in the St. Lawrence or filming the results of a six year drought in Kenya, John has immersed himself in the subject of water for several years. John says, “Both above and below the water, it’s definitely one of my greatest passions – telling a story through film.” His work has been seen on big screens across Canada as well as on television.
John and his well seasoned crew from Fishrizzo Productions have spent countless hours exploring the St. Lawrence River both on and below the surface. His growing inventory of films includes, both “Treasures of the Lost Villages” and “Submerged”, underwater legacies of the communities flooded when the St. Lawrence Seaway was constructed over five decades ago.
John and his team also had an opportunity to get wet with the River Institute a few months ago. He says, “Any time we get to work with an organization that asks us to spend time underwater shooting, we jump at the opportunity. We enjoyed spending quality time with the scientific team at the River Institute learning about our most precious natural resource.”
For the March Speakers Series, John provides a unique vantage point as he invites us to journey with him beneath the waters of the St. Lawrence River to explore the abundant life that lies just below the surface.
