EASTERN TIDE: BOULDERING IN NOVA SCOTIA
Canada / 2002 / 22'
The east coast of Nova Scotia in Canada is a landscape of granite scoured by glaciers a million years ago and beaten by the wind and ocean ever since.
A playground for people who love outdoor activities, Nova Scotia is now a paradise for those who practise bouldering. This Canadian province offers places for climbing all year round, all you have to do is choose the right place. You can climb on sunny days on Dover Island and on cold winter days on the erratic boulders around Peggys Cove.
"Eastern Tide" captures the beauty and raw energy of bouldering in Nova Scotia and introduces us to a few of the little known locals who practise this activity in eastern Canada.
Todd Foster has been in the Television industry for over 17 years and has been an avid rock climber for almost as long. In 2002 he completed a film and DVD about the growing pursuit of bouldering in Nova Scotia, Canada. “Eastern Tide: One Season in Nova Scotia” was a huge personal success. The film toured mountain film festivals around the world and won best Canadian Film at VIMFF. Todd also runs a blog that is updated weekly featuring bouldering in Nova Scotia. www.pulldown.ca
