While small acts of love and kindness can make a huge difference in the world, some decide to go the extra mile for causes they are passionate about, dedicating large sums of time and resources to raise awareness. "Bear Witness," chronicles the year (September 23, 2015 to September 23, 2016) Dave and Amy Freeman spent in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) Wilderness to bring awareness to the threats posed by a proposed sulfide-ore copper mining on the wilderness edge. The video is divided up into four seasons and documents the beauty of the BWCA during each season through video and journal-like audio. It tells their story through their words and perspective, adding a personal touch and a descriptive connection to an area that many may never see. Not only are they advocating for BWCA, but are advocating for standing up for all of the wilderness places around the world. In December 2016, U.S. Federal Agencies denied the mining lease and began an environmental review of the Boundary Waters to determine potential impacts from mining.
