A thrill-seeking explorer wants to find and climb the biggest tree in Canada outside a logging community on the brink of collapse. Set in the formerly prosperous town of Port Renfrew, BC, this adventure documentary is told through the point-of-view of the residents, the local indigenous community, and a group of big tree climbers. Hunting Giants is a cinematic adventure into the old-growth rainforests of British Columbia that asks a question faced by resource communities around the world: extract profit until nothing remains or risk everything in pursuit of a more sustainable future?
