Blue Mountain Watershed Trust’s ever popular Be The Change  Film Series continues with a double feature-The Long Today & The Last Guide.

When filmmaker Niobe Thompson’s father turned 70 he found a ‘river’ on a map, repaired one of his old wood canoes, and invited his family to help him celebrate The Long Today.

Meet Frank Kuiack, The Last Guide in Algonquin Park. Kuiack carries a lifetime of stories and wisdom about Algonquin. His magnetic personality, skills on the water and knowledge of the park’s intricate lakes and trails has inspired two novels.

Kuiack’s niece, Sharleen, has shown a unique ability to go toe-to-toe with Frank on the water but, despite her ability and love for her uncle, she remains unsure how to carry on his legacy or whether she wants to become the next “Last Guide.”
