For over 10,000 years, the Rocky Mountains have offered home, refuge, and sustenance. Millions of people now depend on the health of the mountains. The future of the Rockies is imperilled. The Rockies Repeat documentary project bears witness to climate change in the Canadian Rockies. It follows a collective of women and two-spirited artists, of Indigenous and settler heritage. Revisiting iconic alpine landscapes by early Banff artist, Catharine Robb Whyte, their journey is moving, heartbreaking, and healing.

Documentary director, Caroline Hedin, provides a project overview, relaying the power of storytelling in the time of climate change. Get a preview of the artworks to debut at a 2022 exhibition at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.
