Project Description


Jordan Manley ready to capture the right sounds.

Jordan Manley is a Vancouver based photographer & filmmaker. His films are an effort to explore the human relationship with nature. Jordan produced and directed four seasons of the award winning “A Skier’s Journey”, a film series that examined the ties between landscape, culture, and skiing

Jordan Manley’s film Treeline will be screening at the University of Ottawa. The film is about our oldest living companions on earth: trees. The film brings extraordinary forests in British Columbia, Japan and Nevada “to life” through cinematic exploration of playful, yet powerful experience of gliding through each forest on snow.

They accompany scientists who translate what the oldest trees have to teach us, illuminating the reciprocal bond between humanity and nature — a relationship we can’t survive without.

Jordan Manley has been featured in the Ottawa Adventure Film Festival before. His film China: A Skier’s Journey was a favourite for the audience.

He he will be a part of the discussion via videoconference for ADVENTURE FILM & OUR PLANET at the University of Ottawa on November 21th at 7pm
