INTRO


 

The film chronicles the tormented transformation of Grant Hadwin from expert logger to environmental terrorist, a man who dared to challenge the destruction of the world's last great temperate rainforest.

 

Hadwin’s one-man crusade culminated in a perverse and outrageous act of protest that was, in itself, a crime against nature.

SYNOPSIS


SYNOPSIS


Grant Hadwin was a logging engineer and expert woodsman who lived and worked in British Columbia’s remote and ancient forests.  His job was to find and then remove the largest, oldest and most valuable trees. 

But the consequences of his expertise were becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.  Unable to reconcile his love for the forest with the highly skilled part that he was playing in destroying it, he was driven to commit a strange and unprecedented crime, one that ran contrary to all he had come to hold sacred.

 
 

 

The film interweaves speculation, myth and reality to explore the motives behind Hadwin’s tragic protest, and the consequences of his actions. 

It charts his descent into torment and self-destruction, a journey that ended with a mysterious discovery that made him not just 'a madman', but also a visionary.

A TREE OF LEGEND


‘Hadwin's Judgement’ is inspired by the award winning book, ‘The Golden Spruce: A True Story of Myth, Madness and Greed’.  It is the culmination of a 7 year collaboration between its American writer, John Vaillant, and the British filmmaker, Sasha Snow.

In 2007 the two authors traded two incredible stories about man’s conflict with nature.  John Vaillant’s second book, ‘The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival’, published in 2010, was based on Snow’s multi-award winning film 'Conflict Tiger'.

THE JUDGEMENT


 
I ask you, if you had the power to create all matter, including life, and you could synchronise those creations perfectly, what would you do if one life form was apparently abusing all other life, including themselves?
