We Belong To It, a short film featuring Ray Mears exploring Ontario by canoe, recently won top honours in the Canoeing category at the 10th annual Reel Paddling Film Festival 2015. Created by Goh Iromoto, this wonderful film follows Ray as he journeys into the heart of Wabakimi Provincial Park in northern Ontario, Canada. We Belong To It explores the visual beauty of the Boreal forest landscape, and delves into Ray’s reflections on nature, and his mastered skill set in bushcraft.
Film-maker Goh Iromoto has created a number of works based on wilderness themes, including PULL, a short documentary on crossing the cold Northern Canadian landscape by dog sled. To see more of Goh’s work, please visit his website here.
The Reel Paddling Film Festival showcases the world’s best paddling films to audiences in Canada, the United States and around the world, with the aim of inspiring more people to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, and embrace the lifestyle and appreciate the heritage of the wild places we paddle.
