Strange Fruit:

A Changing Landscape in The Central Okanagan

Strange Fruit: A Changing Landscape in The Central Okanagan is my latest documentary. It’s a feature length, 88 minute look at the transition that local, family-run, orchards are experiencing in and around Kelowna due to Globalization and pressures from land, labour and water management.

Will these pressures bring local food production to an end?
