One Man’s Dream, the History of the Malahat Highway


A fascinating story of Major James MacFarlane who singlehandedly surveyed the route and whose persistence got the road built.  What makes the story so interesting is Major MacFarlane was a real character.  He was basically a drunken Irishman whose friends and family thought was crazy for attempting something everyone said was impossible.  The film is a blend of actual archive material along with re-enactments by dozens of actors.  It features many island locations and takes the viewer from the early 1900s to the present.
