About us

The Paradise Project is a film in the making that captures the community of Niagara coming together to resist the “Paradise” development. Surrounding this local issue, the film follows the stories of a diverse handful of people struggling to save the Thundering Waters Forest in Niagara Falls. 

 

Jon Lepp and Stacey Koudys grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario and were always taken by the beautiful forests and biodiversity present in the Niagara Region. When the community realized that there were problematic development plans for Thundering Waters Forest, Jon and Stacey knew that in being filmmakers, they needed to contribute to the effort to save the forest with their tools at hand.
