“One in a Thousand” is a true story of discovery. One summer day, three friends took off in their ultralight floatplanes. With no destination in mind, they turned right instead of left and followed a river that led them to a place they had no idea even existed. (“One” is currently available only in English.)
Only 2 hours from Montreal, the 1000 Islands had once been the playground of industrialists, presidents and inventors but had somehow become forgotten by many.
“One” is the story of Ian Coristine, one of those three pilots. Ian was stunned by the natural beauty and incredible history of the 1000 Islands and it changed his life. He bought a small island with a decrepit cottage and set about rebuilding it.
Raleigh Island had a perfect harbor for his plane and from it Ian enjoyed what he refers to as “the privileged view”. Ian’s photographs are now recognizable all over the world, and he has published five award-winning books. “One” is the story of how it all happened and is told with a ground-breaking mix of media including:
Nearly 300 pages
Over 450 images (including slideshows)
Interactive maps of the area
Over 20 minutes of aerial and discovery videos
2 Great Lake Swimmers music videos
18 exclusive Great Lake Swimmers instrumental tracks
