Director Leanne Allison in attendance

When Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison (Being Caribou), along with their 2-year old son, Zev, and indomitable dog Willow set out to trace the footsteps of one of Canada's most famous writers, Farley Mowat, they mean it literally.

Their 5000-kilometre trip – trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling from the prairies to the Maritimes – to discover to people and places that inspired Farley Mowat's most acclaimed books is captured in the compelling documentary Finding Farley.
